The Washington Folk Festival is back for its 32nd year at Glen Echo Park. This free festival presents the public with the many folk music, dance and craft traditions that are part of the greater Washington area. The Festival supports over 450 performers on seven stages including: a participatory dance program in the Spanish Ballroom, a storytelling stage, and music for family audiences. Local artisans will demonstrate and exhibit their crafts.
Free satellite parking and shuttle buses are provided from the GEICO parking lot in Friendship Heights. (GEICO is located just two blocks west of Wisconsin Avenue on Western Avenue at 5260 Western Avenue, NW). The shuttle runs Saturday and Sunday from 8am to 8pm.
