2018 Lotus and Water Lily Cultural Festival

Event Description:

The Lotus and Water Lily Festival is an annual event that celebrates global culture in the wild wetlands of Kenilworth Park and Aquatic Gardens. At this free family fun celebration, visitors enjoy cultural exhibitors, hands-on activities, lotus tea tasting, traditional Latin, Asian and African performances and the spectular lotus and water lilies in full bloom! This year’s theme is “Culture, Nature and Community” and we will celebrate the Year of the Anacostia while highlighting the various aspects of culture, nature and communities connected to the Anacostia River, which borders Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens.

Join the Hispanic Access Foundation at its table to participate in a photo scavenger hunt around the aquatic gardens!!
