Embassies will open their doors to DC visitors and residents Saturday, May 5, 2018. Participants can travel the world as they experience the food, art, dance, fashion, and music of different countries. In the past, visitors have been treated to karate demonstrations, dance performances, sari wrapping lessons, and henna demonstrations.
Thanks to everyone who came out on Saturday! It was a remarkable day for international understanding. We are grateful to the 53 embassies, diplomatic staff members, sponsors, volunteers, partners, and public safety officials who greeted the thousands who participated.
