Meso Creso is a Washington DC-based, cross-cultural arts collective that cultivates creativity without boundaries. Named for Mesopotamia’s Fertile Crescent — often considered the cradle of civilization — Meso Creso fuses whimsy and artistry with DC’s cultural diversity and social consciousness.
Dreams becoming reality…
Our vision is a unique event that highlights world music and culture, with elements of creative and healing arts, social activism, and sustainability incorporated through workshops, performances, installations, and events. Through this event, we hope to create safe, inclusive spaces for ourselves and our guests. Join us!
Imagine what you already know and love about Meso Creso – loving community, international cultural diversity, highly crafted art installations, joyful whistles and hand claps, and a DJ lineup that represents the rich mix of its community – but on a bigger scale. This is the Meso Creso Festival.
Two music stages will provide round the clock booty shaking beats. While the emphasis will be on global beats, we will have something for everyone. Hear More

A sanctuary area to recenter, refocus and reinvigorate.
Sick of all the trash that festivals leave behind? So are we! This event will have a complete sustainability plan with recycling, composting, and more.
What will the money be used for?
All funds raised will be used to cover the upfront costs of the festival. We intend for this to be a one-time effort where we raise enough through fundraising and ticket sales to reinvest in the festival in the coming years.
Artwork of Gratitude
The names of all of our festival supporters will be included in an art piece that will be prominently displayed at the event. We want to recognize everyone who has helped us and allow them to join us at the festival in a special way.
