A Story of Volunteerism

The Korean Cultural Center’s new photo exhibit chronicles the volunteer efforts of the Peace Corps and the Korea International Cooperation Agency. To open its two-week run, the center hosts a ribbon cutting, reception and traditional Korean music.


Marcelo Jeneci

Take Marcelo Jeneci’s cheery Brazilian compositions, add his guitar and accordion, and top it off with a six-piece band, and you’ll have an idea of what this Millennium Stage show will sound like.


Chilean art

The Art Museum of the Americas opens two exhibitions on contemporary Chilean art. See the site-specific installations in “Traveling Light, Five Artists From Chile” and explore the at-times complex relationships between Latin American housekeepers and their employers in “Common Place,” all at the opening reception and gallery talk.


Jose Andres and Diana Kennedy

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, the National Archives hosts a talk about Mexican cooking by chef Diana Kennedy. She’ll be joined by none other than Jose Andres, the culinary mastermind behind the Archives’ exhibit “What’s Cooking, Uncle Sam?”


Swiss design

Sure, the Swiss are known for their exquisitely crafted watches, but what about Swiss fashion, shoes and jewelry? In conjunction with the Swiss Embassy, the Alex Gallery displays a collection of pieces hand-crafted by 10 top design students from the Geneva University of Art and Design. The opening reception features wines from Geneva.


Honey Harvest Festival

The bees have been buzzing their way through a whirlwind season of honey making, and now it’s time to sample the sweet fruits of their labor. Learn about bees and other pollinators, make a beeswax candle and taste tons of honey at this annual celebration.


Greek Festival

Leave room in your belly and head to the Greek festival at Saints Constantine & Helen Greek Orthodox Church for baklava and mousaka and an assortment of other Greek fare. Wash it down with Greek coffee, beer or wine, and hear live music or peruse the books, jewelry and crafts at the Greek marketplace.
