37th Smithsonian Folklife Festival

The Smithsonian Folklife Festival is a DC treasure, an outdoor cultural exhibit. Every summer for the past 37 years, the Smithsonian Institution transforms the National Mall into an outdoor museum of sounds, sights, and tastes. The 2003 Folklife Festival explores the cultural traditions of Mali, Scotland, and Appalachia. Exhibits include, Mali: From Timbuktu to Washington, Scotland at the Smithsonian, and Appalachia: Heritage and Harmony. Glimpses into the traditional and modern cultures represented at the 2003 Festival, are offered through craft and textile demonstrations, music performances, storytelling, an instructional kitchen, architecture, and much more. Skilled representatives from Mali, Scotland, and Appalachia come to the National Mall, creating a rare opportunity to learn first-hand about the exhibited cultures.
