Passport DC kicked off with the EU Open House (May 3) and Europe Week (May 3 - 10) where 26 embassies showcased European art, dance, music, food, culture, and film. The International Children's Festival was held on May 10 and provided an opportunity for participants of all ages to learn more about Washington, D.C.'s embassies and international culture via authentic dress, cuisine, music, and art and engaging hands-on displays.
If you have missed these opportunities, World Week is being held this week and will include embassies from Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and the Americas presenting a variety of cultural programs and events showcasing ethnic dance, art, jewelry, music and food. Passport DC will culminate on May 17 with an Around the World Open House at 24 embassies and the National Asian Heritage Festival - a street festival not to be missed. What an opportunity to learn more about the District's diplomatic community and the world!!
