This year the Smithsonian Folklife Festival (June 30th through July 4th, July 7th through July 11th) in Washington, DC will have a focus on the Nature of Colombia. The program will focus on the amazing ecological diversity of Colombia. At the event you will find artisans from several regions of Colombia, showcasing traditional arts and crafts as well as ones that have risen from modern culture. It’s particularly interesting that the Festival showcases Colombia this year as they will also have a focus on Fifty Years of the Peace Corps, and one of the first countries the Peace Corps went to was Colombia!
