Interfaith Picnic at Washington National Cathedral

Saturday, September 9, 2017 | 5:00pm

Bring a meal to this interfaith, intergenerational picnic on the Cathedral’s west lawn. Get to know neighbors from the community and around the region as we share a meal and celebrate together.

Activities include the Unity Project, an interactive public art project with a larger-than-life structure that helps us weave a web of connectedness among our different identities; and People Bingo (with prizes!) to get to know your neighbors.

We will be joined by the Washington Revels, a multigenerational performing arts community, who have celebrated traditional music, dance, stories, and drama from around the world and across the centuries for 35 years (

The evening ends with Havdalah, the Jewish ritual that marks the end of Shabbat.

Reservations requested. Co-sponsored by the InterFaith Conference of Metropolitan Washington.

RAIN DATE: Sunday, September 17, 4-6 pm

Volunteer today!
Volunteers are needed for registration, as hearty hospitality greeters, and for the Unity Project. There are four volunteer shifts—we encourage you to sign up for 2 shifts (3 hours total). No experience necessary. A volunteer orientation will be provided. Sign-up here.
