On Friday and Saturday, you can preview Spring/Summer 2020 fashions at DC Swim Week at the Italian Embassy. And Sunday is your last chance to get unhinged at Capital Fringe.
Saturday is the annual Day of Archaeology Festival and National Geographic Family Day. Meanwhile, Capital Fringe is carrying on through July 28 in Southwest.
The two exhibitions, now on view, offer a case study in the National Museum of African Art's targeted but multivariant presentation of African history, culture and artistic achievement.
Capital Fringe shows are popping up all over Southwest and you can pop a cork for Bastille Day at several locations, including the Perry Belmont House.
As ever, the Fourth of July will be celebrated in D.C. with a parade and "A Capitol Fourth." You can also mark the nation’s 243rd birthday at the National Archives and the Rooftop at the Graham Georgetown.
Shoppers can loosen up for the District Warehouse Sale on Saturday with a little morning tai chi in Chinatown. This year’s Smithsonian Folklife Festival is Saturday and Sunday on the National Mall.
The Smithsonian museums will be open until midnight on Saturday as part of the By The People festival. Check out the Bolivian dancing at the National Museum of the American Indian, followed by a dance party.
The free festival has four official hubs: the Smithsonian’s Arts + Industries Building; Union Market; upscale development CityCenterDC; and a barge that will dock at Washington Harbour from June 15 to 17.
The 2019 DC Jazz Festival will shoot the works with free afternoon and evening shows on Saturday and Sunday at the Wharf. Also this weekend: final performances of two Shakespeare plays.
On view at the Freer Gallery of Art through Oct. 6, this small jewel of an exhibition is the first major exploration of these works since the 1930s.
