Each morning of the festival, Around the Mall will publish a list of events to help you navigate the National Mall and make the most of your visit. This year’s festival features three programs: Hungarian Heritage: Roots to Revival; One World, Many Voices: Endangered Languages and Cultural Heritage; and The Will to Adorn: African American Diversity, Style and Identity. Come experience it all during these ten days of food, music, dancing, storytelling, culture and more.
