The event was hosted by Cuban President Raúl Castro and held at the Palace of the Revolution in Cuba's capitol city of Havana. No toasts or speeches were expected, as is customary at U.S. state dinners.
Traditional Cuban music was played and cigars and turn were set out.
The Obamas' attendance at the state dinner was just one of a series of milestones during the historic two-day trip. Earlier today, Obama and Castro held a one-on-one bilateral meeting, followed by a larger meeting with U.S. and Cuban officials. The leaders of the two countries also held a joint news conference this afternoon.
