Join us as we partner with the Fredricksen Library in Camp Hill and travel to the annual Smithsonian Folklife Festival. Held on the National Mall in Washington, DC, rain or shine, the festival hosts a wide range of authentic living traditions — both old and new.

Returning after a year's hiatus, the festival is back in full form to explore how diverse domains of cultural knowledge — from religion to design to science — shape the ways we understand, experience, and respond to ever-changing natural, social, and built environments.

Programs will include regional representations from Brazil and the United Arab Emirates, alongside the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon and Smithsonian Conservation Commons.

Sample this expansive and exciting event at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival's YouTube Channel.

About the Trip

During the day, you'll have plenty of free time to explore and participate in the festival! On the way home, we will make a stop for dinner on your own.

Wear comfortable shoes as there will be some walking. Many of the areas are tented, but note that this is a rain or shine event.

Be aware of security restrictions and consider leaving your pocketknife and similar items at home.

Tickets
