If you are in DC in the month of May, make sure to check out Cultural Tourism DC’s website for a list of events. May is “International Cultural Awareness Month” in DC and, to celebrate, Cultural Tourism DC puts on a month-long festival called Passport DC. The Around the World Embassy Tour, which is part of Passport DC, is one of my most favorite DC events. This year it is to take place on Saturday, May 5. The event includes over 40 embassies opening to the public and having food, drinks and cultural events (many of which are free). There is also a similar European-centric event taking place on Saturday, May 12. I HIGHLY recommend these events. Two years ago when I went I visited the Afghan (interesting food), British (beautiful grounds), Belgian (awesome beer tasting), Finnish (a lot of fish foods), Hungarian (cute dogs), Czech, Cape Verde, Austrian, Slovakian, and other embassies. DO DO DO take advantage of the month-long celebration put on by Cultural Tourism DC.
