 The Embassy of Panama joins 20+ other embassies to present culture in various facets to children and families at the 2018 Culturfied International Children’s Festival in Washington, DC.

The festival will be held April 29, 2018 from Noon-4 PM at the Ronald Reagan Building & International Trade Center.

The International Children’s Festival was originally created and presented up until 2012 by Meridian International Center Educational Outreach Programs and will be relaunched and presented this year by Culturfied Foundation.

The Culturfied Foundation is a leading non-profit organization headquartered in Washington, D.C. Through strategic partnerships the foundation offers a cultural literacy program to elementary and middle school students annually in the Washington metro area.

The International Children’s Festival is the foundation’s latest project to join their portfolio of more than a dozen cultural education programs and events each year.

Mele Melton, President of Culturfied Foundation says, “We are proud to present the 2018 festival and we are delighted that it is FREE and open to the public! We expect large attendance from Washington, D.C. metro area elementary, middle and high schools students and their families, as well as Diplomatic staff, Hill staff and their families. We are looking forward to a great day of learning and sharing.”

The Culturfied International Children’s Festival is designed to provide Washington D.C metropolitan area families with a unique exposure to international customs from a wide variety of cultures, all conveniently located in one central location.  Every child will become a ‘global explorer’ and will have the opportunity to:

·         Travel to embassy-sponsored booths and get their passport stamped 

·         Sample international cuisine and make traditional arts and crafts 

·         Learn about the diverse traditions and world geography 

·         Try on attire of countries around the world 

·         Enjoy international dance, music, and comedic acts; many groups will delight children and their families by inviting them on stage for interactive lessons.
