Freedom Plaza DC
UPDATE – Due to current Turf Restoration of the Monument Grounds and closure of the Washington Monument, this year’s festival will be moved to Freedom Plaza on August 18, 2018.
Welcome to the third edition of the Around The World Cultural Food Festival at Freedom Plaza and Pennsylvania Avenue (between 13th and 14th streets), right across from the White House.
As you are already know, we are bringing you the most authentic cuisine of several countries participating in the event (all our food vendrors are licensed businesses in the DMV area), beautiful cultural performances, as well as ethnic cooking demos and a traditional costume exhibit show.
Come join us for a full day of culture, art, food and performances!
Kids and pets friendly event.
While the Festival is Admission Free, we kindly ask you to consider a suggested donation of $10 per family to support the event.
For less than a single movie ticket you can take your whole family for a day trip around the world in your own back yard. The festival is PRIVATELY FUNDED by a small non-profit 501c(3) organization with no commercial or government funding. The organization presents and educates the public on cultural diversity, arts and history preservation in hopes that it will be passed on and maintained from generation to generation.
Money raised from donations will be used entirely to cover the costs for producing such a large scale event on the National Mall and be able to continue to spread cultural awareness through this festival in the future.
Also, if you want a VIP treatment, please take a look at what the VIP ticket entitles:
— Access to the VIP Tent area, close to the stage
— Seated enclosed area, where you can enjoy the food and watch the shows from under the shade of a large tent.
— No more than a 5-7 minute wait VIP Line access to all food vendors
— 2 Free Soft Drinks of choice included
— VIP Tickets will be redeemed on site from the Organizer’s Tent
— Kids 6 and under are free with parents ticket purchase (no drinks included)
Even if you cannot attend the event, please consider making a small contribution to this cultural and educational family friendly festival.
