International Embassies Open House – FREE (Save the Date)
May 5 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT
Visit embassies for FREE with Washington, DC History & Culture as we once again participate in the “Around the World Embassy Tour.” This is one of our favorite and most popular events of the year.
How does it work? We meet as a group at a central point such as a Metro station, and then spend a fun-filled day visiting several different embassies. Along the way you’ll meet interesting people and soak up the sights, sounds and tastes from a variety of international cultures.
For now, this is a “save the date” type announcement and we will provide more specific details as we get closer to the event date. The “Around the World Embassy Tour” is organized by our friends at “Cultural Tourism DC” (web link below).
Around the World Embassy Tour Returns May 5, 2018!
More than 40 embassies will open their doors to DC visitors and residents Saturday, May 5, 2018. Participants can travel the world as they experience the food, art, dance, fashion, and music of different countries. In the past, visitors have been treated to karate demonstrations, dance performances, sari wrapping lessons, and henna demonstrations.
Participating embassies from last year:

Please note, the European Union Embassy Open House event is Saturday, May 12. Information on that event will be posted separately at a later date.
Registration: This FREE event is open to the public and all are welcome. Registration, while not required to attend, does help us know how many people to expect and also allows you to stay informed of any event updates such as our meeting point, embassy recommendations, etc.
Weather: This event is partially indoors and will take place rain or shine.
Meeting Point: TBD approximately 7 days beforehand, at which time that info will be posted. In the past we’ve met at the Dupont Circe or some other Washington, DC Metro station.
