The NCTA and our various partners are thrilled to share a first glimpse of our 2023 season with you—a look ahead at the year in traditional arts! We are excited to return once again this summer and fall to our thriving legacy festival communities in Montana, Massachusetts, and Virginia. In September, National Endowment for the Arts’ (NEA) National Heritage Fellows travel to Washington, D.C., for honorific events and activities. And throughout the year, our exciting new program National Treasures: A Tour of Culture Bearers in National Parks builds on its successful first year of connecting Fellows with signature National Parks.
Stay tuned for updates as more programs are announced throughout the spring and summer. Follow us on social media to stay current with our activities.
