Talent Time continues to evolve as one of the largest diverse multi-cultural competition in the Washington D.C area. It has come a long way from being a one-day event with under 100 participants and around 15 competitions to now 600+ participants, over 25 competitions across 3 days! And what's even better - the competitions are open to tiny tots to youth and adults! Yes - you read it right - Age is not a barrier to unveil your talent at KAGW's Talent Time - where Time Waits For Talent!

Participation in Talent Time helps build confidence and interpersonal skills through collaboration and engagement while fostering a sense of belonging and togetherness within the community. Achievements through competitions motivate young and adult alike to perform and excel as well as uncover personal aptitude. They offer a lot more reward than just winning a prize!

KAGW's Talent Time is a 100% volunteer driven effort. In addition to providing a unique platform to display ones creative, intellectual and artistic aptitude, it is simply so much fun to be a part of it that we are confident you will look forward to the gala every year!
