After ten days of extraordinary performances, workshops, and demonstrations, the 2013 Smithsonian Folklife Festival is officially over. We are honored and inspired by the generosity of the participants as well as the support and enthusiasm of visitors. We look forward to continuing the conversations and relationships that we have begun through the planning for and presentation of our 47th Festival.
Even after we pack up and clear off of the National Mall, we will be sharing more images, audio streams, and videos from the Festival. We look forward to seeing more of your images and stories in our Flickr group, on Facebook, and on Tumblr.
