The 2019 Around the World Cultural Food Festival will be held at Freedom Plaza on Saturday August 17 from 11am-7pm. Stop #2, White House Visitor Center, will remain open, but please expect re-routes and delays.
We will be closed for Night tours on Saturday evening due to large private event.
Pershing is not the only notable you should visit at this stop. Other notables include Corporal Ira Hayes who was one of the six men to raise the flag on top of Mt. Suribachi at Iwo Jima, General Henry “Hap” Arnold who was the only person to receive a five star rank in two branches of the service, the Army and Air Force, and Corporal Frank W. Buckles who was the oldest surviving World War I veteran. He died in 2011 at the age of 110.
