The annual EU Embassy Open House is one of the best days of the year to be in DC! You can go in all of the embassies of EU countries and learn about the countries, tour the buildings, and get free food, drink and information! Experience the best of European culture without the jet lag: join the European Union Embassies and the EU Delegation for a day of family fun, food, dancing, kids entertainment, exhibitions, vacation planning, and more.
On May 11th, we invite you to take a rare behind-the-scenes look at the Embassies, some of which are among Washington’s historic and architectural treasures. Each embassy will open to the public from 10 am until 4 pm on Saturday, May 11, 2012, offering a rare look inside the buildings and providing a unique opportunity to experience the country's cultural heritage and national traditions.
Free shuttle bus service will be provided throughout the day with stops at embassies and select Metro stations. The EU Delegation and the Embassies will offer authentic music, dance, food, film, art and fun for the whole family and friends. The EU Embassies’ Open House, the single biggest celebration of the EU in the world, demonstrates the EU’s motto of “unity through diversity” by showcasing the range and richness of European society.
