What: European Union Embassies Open House Event (Free)

Where: European Union Embassies, DC

When: Saturday, May 12 at 9:30 AM

Location: Meet outside directly behind the escalators of the Dupont Metro Station. Look for the Meetup sign which will be clearly visible.

Many people have told me how much fun this was last year, so I figured I should go ahead and make this a meetup event. You do not have to show up at the beginning (pretty early for Saturday :), you can show up any time you want, as this goes until 4:00 P.M. It is free to attend this event. Free shuttle buses provided transport to the Embassies.

I plan on arriving when it starts, so if anyone is interested, a group of us can meet before it starts. I will give my phone number out closer to the time of the event. You are also free to scatter and linger on your own as well.

The Embassies of the European Union and the Delegation of the European Commission to the United States, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m, will open their doors to the public, offering a rare look at the diverse EU cultures. The event kicks off Europe Week.
