There are several opportunities for your choir to perform during the National Heritage Festival. Performances are scheduled between 11 am and 1 pm Friday and Saturday at selected parks in Washington, D.C. Bring your choir and perform. Choirs may pick the songs they wish to perform. 

All participating choir members must dress in the official National Heritage Festival matching t-shirts. This is what makes this event possible. The t-shirts are $25 each and are available at the National Heritage Festival Store. Your choir may pick the shirt color they would like to wear. It is fine mix colors in your choir (like red, white and blue). Available colors:

  • Red
  • White
  • Blue
  • Black
  • Gold

We ask that the performers wear the t-shirt and black or blue pants during the performances. Please purchase your t-shirts as soon as possible so that the t-shirt printer has time to make them and ship them to you in time for the event.

The Park Service does not allow organizations to sell t-shirts. So be advised, we will NOT have t-shirts for sale at the event.

To register your choir, click here. Then visit the National Heritage Festival Store on this website to purchase your t-shirts. The deadline for choir registrations and t-shirt orders is August 15, 2018.

We are looking forward to having your choir with us.

Notice:  Due to regulations pertaining to large public events being held on Federal land, we were forced to cancel the Unity Gathering and World record attempt at the U.S. mall on September 23, 2018. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
