Registration is closed

Join fellow CCW members and guests at  the Smithsonian Folk Life Festival on the National Mall for a talk on the history and transformations of American Chinatowns, and then we’ll go out for Chinese food at Sichuan Pavilion, downtown DC.

Will you be at this year’s Smithsonian Folklife Festival on the National Mall on Sunday, June 29th? Or do you just want to take a break from your usual Sunday afternoon routine?

Join fellow CCW members and guests at 1:15 pm on Sunday, June 29, 2014, at the free “Chinatown Talk Story” event of the 2014 Smithsonian Folklife Festival on the National Mall where you will converse with panelists about the history and transformations of American Chinatowns and the ongoing changes that are occurring in Washington, DC’s Chinatown.  Offer some thoughts and opinions about the future of that vibrant and vital part of Washington where the Verizon Center is located.  Come prepared with your questions and opinions, (or just to listen).  Then we’ll go out for Chinese food at Sichuan Pavilion, a moderately priced K Street favorite of Washington lawyers and lobbyists for decades (participants bear their own costs at the restaurant).   Please note there is a limit of 20 attendees for the meal at Sichuan Pavilion.

While the event is free or you pay your own, we will need an approximate head count for the restaurant so they can accommodate our group.  And to be considerate, please let us know if you end up having to cancel.
