Organized in 1996 and incorporated in 1999, Cultural Tourism DC collaborates, develops, and delivers authentic, memorable experiences for people to learn about and enjoy Washington, DC. We like locals to discover (or re-discover) DC's neighborhoods and we invite visitors to see the museums and the monuments before heading out to experience of the 131 neighborhoods that are distinctly DC.

And when locals and visitors go into DC's neighborhoods, they discover Cultural Tourism DC's Affiliate Member that represent humanities, arts, and cultural entities across the city. We provide these Affiliates with resources that help them build audiences for their programs. For a nominal fee, the Cultural Tourism DC Affiliate program gives marketing support and promotional tools to our Affiliates, including an online calendar, digital shopping mall, YouTube playlists, social media promotion and a weekly events newsletter, Culture Communique, that is emailed to 21,000 arts and humanities enthusiasts.

Cultural Tourism DC also helps its Affiliates promote openings for internships, jobs and fundraising events as well as calls for volunteers and artists – and such fun events as contests, scavenger hunts and more!

Cultural Tourism DC belongs in your promotional mix. We help tell your story and attract the quality audiences you seek.
