The International Childrens Festival is an interactive, educational event that allows children of all ages to travel the world in a single day. More than 20 Embassies host educational booths that highlight their countries rich cultural heritage, expose participants to international customs, and provide an important global perspective.

The Festival is hosted by Meridian International Center and THIS for Diplomats, in partnership with Cultural Tourism DC and the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center. Now in its sixth(6) year, the new Ronald Reagan Building venue provides additional capacity, Metro access, and brings the event downtown just steps away from the White House and National Mall.

A highlight of Meridians educational outreach program, the Festival provides vital and unique programming -free of charge- to children and their parents.
