EHSNA is also connecting all Ethiopians and friends of Ethiopians by enriching our culture and traditions and strengthening our community. This celebration is for all Ethiopians and the friends of Ethiopia where ever they may be.

This year, after tireless work of EHSNA members and the community along with the collaboration of Montgomery County Executive Honorable Isaiah Leggett office members, the Montgomery County proclaims month of March is recognized as a Victory of Adwa in Montgomery County that includes the Washington DC metro area of Silver Spring.

After this effective achievement in the history of Ethiopians in North America; EHSNA is ready to provide another memorable festival this summer, which will have a unique, family oriented, unparalleled event. The coming festival will showcase Ethiopian heritage, history and culture.

The all day long festival hosts a variety of events and activities that are both entertaining and educational.
