Around the World Cultural Food Festival

 

Celebrating the rich intercultural diversity, the “Around the World Cultural Food Festival” invites you to join us for our Annual event Saturday, June 16, 2018,  from 11:00 AM – 7:00 PM on the National Mall in Washington D.C. This event is free of charge, with plenty of food and beverages available for purchase. Come enjoy delicious foods from around the world while watching a diverse folk show with singers and dancers from different countries, as well as a fashion show with traditional outfits from some of our participating countries.

Culture encompasses the customs and traditions of a country. Culture encompasses religion, food, what we wear, how we wear it, our language, marriage, music, what we believe is right or wrong, how we sit at the table, how we greet visitors, how we behave with loved ones, and a million other things, United States is one of the most culturally diverse countries in the world. Nearly every region of the world has influenced American culture, as it is a country of immigrants, most notably the English who colonized the country beginning in the early 1600s. U.S. culture has also been shaped by the cultures of Native Americans, Europeans, Latin Americans, Africans and Asians.

Just as cultures from around the world have influenced American culture, today American culture influences the world. The term Western culture often refers broadly to the cultures of the United States and Europe.
