About Festivals in Washington DC

Monumental Washington D.C. is more than just the powerful and influential home of American democracy – it’s a place jam-packed with museums, history, significance and decisions; a place of culture, art and important landmarks. It’s also a location full of fun and unique festivals, with many opportunities for visitors to engage in a smorgasbord of food, drinks, workshops, flowers, attractions, music and more, with a perfect festival for every visitor.

National Cherry Blossom Festival is a pink, pretty and parading package of pleasure. Over three weeks, more than 1.5 million guests drift along to Washington to ogle the beautiful trees and honour the history and significance of their creation. When the blossoms bloom, so too does the atmosphere, with a great program of parades, parties, cocktails, food, music, dancing and fireworks. Over the duration, there are a number of varied offerings and events to delight in the culture of (and relationship between) Japan and the USA, and loads to keep the whole family occupied.

H Street Festival is an outdoors event with bands, beer and boogying, and promotes a vibrant and vivid energy exactly suited to such a neighbourhood block party. Each year, artists, musicians and attendees come together to celebrate the spirit of the state and chill out in the temperate September streets. The event is well-renowned for its great gastronomic offering of local and ethnic food trucks, with lots to nibble and munch while meandering around the block.

Passport DC is a month-long international festival which promotes cultural immersion and educates visitors on various people and traditions from around the world. With workshops, street events, animals and exhibitions, visitors are treated to loads of international food and entertainment with artists and performers from all over the globe. Various embassies open their doors to over 200,000 attendees, and all of the family can learn about the culture of places as far and wide as Afghanistan, Botswana, Gabon, Kosovo, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka and more.

Throughout the year, there are also other serious and sombre events dedicated to Martin Luther King Jr., the diplomacy of the state and fallen heroes lost in combat, though all of these of course honour and promote the culture and bravery of the great United States.
