Lotus Asian Cultural Festival

Celebrate the peak blooming season of water lily varieties and lotus plants in the ponds as well as the freshwater tidal marshes along the Anacostia River that historically covered parts of the city and remain a hidden natural oasis in an urban landscape. This festival highlights and explores the lotus plant's enduring influence on Asian cultures over the centuries.

The Annual Water Lily and Lotus Asian Cultures Festival is sponsored by the Modern Buddism of America. In Buddism, lotus flowers symbolize mental and spiritual purity.
