In the summer of 2013, Hungary was the guest of honor for 10 days at one of the largest outdoor events in the United States, the annual Smithsonian Folklife Festival.
Titled Hungarian Heritage – Roots to Revival, the program displayed Hungary’s folk art traditions in music, dance, crafts, dress and gastronomy. For the 10 days of the festival, June 26–30 and July 3–7, the Hungarian Village on the National Mall was filled with some 120 delegates of musicians, dancers, artisans, cooks, researchers, folk games experts, educators, and representatives of tradition bearing communities.

This book commemorates the festival. It provides a glance into the details, preparations, organizing process, decisionmaking, concepts, the complexity of the task, and our teamwork.
