Okay, so this photo is from a previous year’s Folklife Festival, but give me a break: The Smithsonian Folklife Festival starts tomorrow! YAY!  I get sort of ridiculously excited about this, since visiting the Festival generally involves beating sun, ridiculous humidity, and not nearly enough bottled water… but it also involves music and dancing and craft demonstrations and pretty much every awesome thing I can think of about having a cultural treasure like the Smithsonian in our back yard.

This year’s themes are Giving Voice: The Power of Words in African-American Culture, Las Americas, and Wales. So there promises to be lots of good spoken word performance as well.

The festival opens tomorrow, June 24th, and will continue through June 28th, then pausing and picking up again July 1st-5th.
