Around the World Embassy Open House - Visit Embassies for FREE!
Meet People + See Places + Learn Things + Have Fun!
One of our favorite events of the year - the Around the World Embassy Open House!
More than 50 embassies will open their doors to DC visitors and residents on Saturday, May 2, 2020. Participants can travel around the world as they experience the food, art, dance, fashion, and music of different countries - and meet lots of interesting people!
Save the Date: For now this is a save-the-date type announcement and we'll provide more event details as we get closer to May 2, 2020 - approximately a month beforehand. The embassies are typically open from 10:00 to 4:00, although we like to arrive early.
Tickets: No tickets are required - just show up. This event is open to the public and all are welcome including individuals, couples, groups and children. You are invited to RSVP with us, Washington, DC History & Culture, to receive event and weather updates, tips and suggestions, etc. through email and/or social media.

Washington, DC History & Culture: You are welcome to visit the embassies on your own, or with members of our non-profit community organization - Washington, DC History & Culture. The advantage of coming with us is that we've participated in this event for the past several years and can guide you through the crowds to visit the best locations with minimal wait times. Our group often receives special perks not offered to the general public. We'll also bring markers and stickers for people in our group to write their first name so that you can meet lots of friendly people, determine who is in our group, etc. as opposed to just attending by yourself.
Friday Night Embassy Row / Massachusetts Avenue Walking Tour = May 1 and the European Union Embassy Open House = May 9. Details to follow.
Additional Questions: Anything that can't be answered by the above event description, Google, or common sense please let us know.
