International Festival of Language and Culture /

At a time when one might feel discouraged, distressed or hopeless amid news of violence, conflict and war, the International Festival of Language and Culture (IFLC) sprouts seeds of hope, in celebration of rich diversity and intercultural dialogue, with its 14th annual language and culture festival, “Beautiful Colors of the World.”

The IFLC has been hosting its language and culture festival for the past 13 years, showcasing both the rich multicultural diversity of our world, as well as the boundless talent of our youth. The IFLC draws participants from over 160 countries across the globe, with over 1000 student performers each year at numerous regional events worldwide, and in its 15th year, Washington, DC will be one of many cities co-hosting this international event.

The IFLC expects to draw more than 100 young performers from over 20 countries to this year’s festival in Washington DC, “Beautiful Colors of the World”, to exhibit their cultural traditions through poetry, song and dance, in an expression of friendship, and hope for the future.

We encourage you to save the date for this inspirational festival of cultural expression to be held on Monday, May 22, 2017 at 6:30 P.M.  in Washington, DC.
