North American Festival of Wales 2018 – Alexandra VA

The North American Festival of Wales 2018

Hosted by the Washington D.C. Welsh Society

Alexandra Virginia

The tradition began in 1929 when over 4,000 people gathered at Niagara Falls for the first National Gymanfa Ganu. It became the largest gathering of the Welsh, descendants, and friends in North America. While the gymanfa and Welsh singing tradition remain at the heart of the weekend, in 2002 the National Gymanfa Ganu became the North American Festival of Wales, reflecting the many aspects of Welsh culture, past and present. The festival is held in a different location each year, in either the U.S. or Canada, and celebrated over the shared Labor Day holiday weekend. Prepare yourself for four full days of song, merriment, and camaraderie with old and new friends, celebrating the life, heritage, and culture of Wales in Washington, D.C.
