Around the World Embassy Open House - Visit Embassies for FREE!

Saturday, May 4, 2019, 4:00 PM

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 4. 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!   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.   Weather: This event is mostly indoors and will take place rain (which will reduce the crowds) or shine.   List of Participating Embassies & Event Details from Cultural Tourism DC: https://www.culturaltourismdc.org/portal/signature-events   _________________________   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. We’ll also hand out our “Meetup” stickers so you can meet lots of friendly people, determine who is in our group, etc. as opposed to just attending by yourself.   Our Schedule: Guests are free to come along with us in a “buffet-style” event, visiting the embassies we select, or venture off on their own since there are over 50 sites open. Participants are also free to arrive and depart whenever they like.   Meet Us at Any of These Places:   Early Morning Session: Argentina (1600 New Hampshire Ave NW) & Botswana (1531 New Hampshire Ave NW) 8:20-8:40 - Krispy Kreme Donuts (1350 Connecticut Ave NW) for breakfast/coffee 8:45-9:00 - Dupont Circle North Metro Station (Connecticut Ave/20th St/Q St. NW) meet and greet 9:00 - In line at either the Argentina or Botswana embassy and socialize before the doors open at 10:00 10:00-10:45/TBD - Argentina or Botswana visit (your choice)   Late Morning Session: Cote d'Ivoire / The Ivory Coast (2424 Massachusetts Ave NW) 11:00 - TBD - Meet outside the Cote d'Ivoire / The Ivory Coast Embassy TBD - Embassy visit (not sure how long it will take to enter or how long to stay)   Afternoon Session: TBD Stay tuned for details   Post-Event Dinner & Socializing - Dupont Circle 4:30 - BGR The Burger Joint (1514 Connecticut Ave NW) or other nearby location   Additional Questions: Anything that can’t be answered by the above event description, Google, or common sense please let us know.   _________________________   This program is hosted by our friends at Cultural Tourism DC, and is being promoted by the non-profit community organization Washington, DC History & Culture: “bringing people together to experience the history and culture of Washington, DC.” https://www.Facebook.com/DCHistoryAndCulture https://www.Meetup.com/DCHistoryAndCulture https://DCHistoryAndCulture.Eventbrite.com https://www.Instagram.com/DCHistoryAndCulture/ #DCHistoryAndCulture We look forward to seeing you - thanks!
