Ethiopian Heritage Festival

Get a taste of Ethiopian culture through music, food and dance at this Washington, DC celebration with Emma Green who explores street festivals across the US.

Washington, DC has the largest number of Ethiopians outside Ethiopia and is the site for a lively festival where music and food mingle with historians and dance. Get a taste of this culture in this episode of Fest-A-Nation as host Emma Green makes friends over food at the Ethiopian Heritage Festival.

The self-described “Martha Stewart meets MacGyver of all things food, wine and travel,” Emma Green asks the questions you would ask if you were there and gets the answers with her ever-present smile as she eats, drinks and dances her way through festivals that celebrate and preserve international cultures far from home.What fun festivals have you enjoyed recently?
