The panel, which will include Turkish and American academics and representatives of nongovernmental organizations, will focus on the cultural aspects of relations between the two countries. It will also discuss the state of Türkiye-U.S. relations in recent years and the future of relations in a cultural context.

An exhibition titled "Türkiye's Century" will also be organized at the Turkish House. The exhibition will explain Türkiye's achievements over the past 100 years with three-dimensional shows on special digital giant screens.

Special games and entertainment for children will also be organized. The Turkish Day Parade will also take place on May 18.
