If you couldn’t brave the rain (or just didn’t get enough international flavor) during this past weekend’s annual Embassy Walk, we have good news: this Saturday is the European Union’s Open House, which also returns in-person this year.
From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the EU and more than 20 of its associated embassies will open their doors to visitors for a day of European food, music, and fashion—no tickets (or passports) required.
Here are just a few highlights we’re looking forward to:
- enjoying a live jazz band with lindy hop dancers and a dog show at the Embassy of Czechia (3900 Spring of Freedom St., NW)
- taking a comic book tour of Belgium, along with warm waffles, at the Embassy of Belgium (2175 K St., NW)
- designing #StandWithUkraine buttons at the European Union (2175 K St., NW)
- savoring Italian favorites, such as pizza, ice cream, and espresso, at the Embassy of Italy (3000 Whitehaven St., NW)
- sampling Danish delicacies at the Embassy of Denmark (3200 Whitehaven St., NW)
- admiring a sculpture exhibition at the Embassy of Greece (2217 Massachusetts Ave., NW)
- practicing the FIKA lifestyle by sipping on coffee and enjoying rooftop views at the Embassy of Sweden (2900 K St., NW)
