Turkish Cultural Heritage Month

Join the “Line Dance for Peace “at the Annual Turkish Festival

Famous, for organizing the Annual Turkish Festival, in the heart of the nation’s capital for 14 years, the American Turkish Association of Washington DC (ATA-DC) is pleased to announce “Line Dance for Peace” initiative and invite Washingtonians to join hands to call for World Peace at this year’s festival. The Turkish Festival, which has been recently selected as the “Best Festival” and “Best Cultural Festival” by Washington City Paper readers, will take place on Sunday, September 25, 2016 on Pennsylvania Avenue NW between 12th and 14th Streets. Every year, the award-winning festival brings together numerous Turkish-style artists, artisans and authentic vendors, along with more than 20,000 attendees.

This September, ATA-DC cordially invites all Washingtonians and Diaspora groups, who call our nation’s capital home, to join us in honoring the diverse colors and cultures of our city with traditional dances, which symbolizes peace and cultural interaction for centuries. Our volunteer-led organization cannot think of a better place to be than Washington DC, one of the most diverse cities in the United States, to create a circle of friendship to create and promote peace and tolerance.
