The Ethiopian Heritage Society in North America (EHSNA) is pleased to announce that it will hold its 5th annual cultural and inheritance summer festival in Washington, DC. Our festival will take place Sunday July 26th at Multisport Facility in Georgetown University. We would like every Ethiopian and friends of Ethiopia to join us for this unique and memorable event.

EHSNA is once again ready to promote and celebrate the Ethiopian rich culture, tradition, diversity and heritage. This family oriented event will feature a multifaceted activity that is geared to actively engage and please guests of all ages while children and their parents will remain the focus. However, as in the past four events, we will pay particular attention to the youth and continue to keep our promise to empower them with a motto “Your Roots Produce Your Fruits.”

EHSNA’s aims to preserve the Ethiopian culture, celebrate her identity, strengthening the community and connecting Ethiopians from all walks of life, irrespective of their religious or political background, remains a paramount goal.

What is particularly unique about this year’s event is the fact that EHSNA, in collaboration with Ethiopian churches, mosques and the Ethiopian community at large, will dedicate the event in commemoration of those Ethiopians who had been mercilessly beheaded by ISIS in Libya due to their unblemished belief in Christianity and for those others who were brutally attacked in South Africa in conjunction with Xenophobia. We will also remember the parents and the extended family members of these victims who are in great grief. However, July 26 memorial service will be a happy celebration and featured with prayer, poetry, drama, lecture and so on.

We would like to invite and encourage every Ethiopian and friends of Ethiopia to join us in this unforgettable, extraordinary memorial event.  At the same time, you will get a chance to visit a variety food and dry goods vendors as part of the event.
Finally, we continue to invite Ethiopians, throughout United States and Canada, who may be interested to join EHSNA, in capacity of members or volunteers, to help build and strengthen the organization and thereby serve the Ethiopian community.
