Can you get more festive than this?
Barack Obama's time as president is almost at a close, but he is determined to go out with a bang and continues to deliver inspiring speeches at public events.
He spoke about the importance of the arts at the event, and how it can change people's lives.
"We need song, and cinema, and paintings and performance to help us challenge our assumptions, to question the way things are and maybe inspire us to think how things might be," he said.
"The arts help us celebrate our triumphs, but also hold up a mirror to our flaws. And all of that deepens our understanding of the human condition, it helps us to see ourselves in each other, it helps to bind us together as a people."
We'll miss you Barack and Michelle!
