16th Annual DC Turkish Festival, themed “Turkey’s Woven History”, will offer a full day of FREE activities that range from lively folk dancing and musical performances to arts and crafts activities for children and adults.
Visitors will enjoy other much-loved aspects of Turkey such as its delicious cuisine, traditional coffee fortune reading, and a bustling Bazaar. The Festival brings together a wide range of artists and more than 25,000 Washingtonians in an environment that fosters intellectual curiosity and leads to fun and engaging interactions.
In collaboration with the Textile Museum’s “A Nomad’s Art: Kilims of Anatolia” exhibit, this year’s festival will feature Turkey’s woven history through her kilims.
Annual Turkish Festival is an award-winning event organized by the American Turkish Association of Washington, DC (ATA-DC). In April 2016, the readers of the Washington City Paper voted the Turkish Festival as the “Best Cultural Festival” and “Best Festival of DC”.
