“Behind the doors of DC’s embassies await a wealth of cultural treasures most residents and visitors will never experience in one day–that is until Passport DC rolls around. For the third year Passport DC provides an authentic insider experience of the diplomatic community that allows DC to rightly claim a place as one of the world’s most international cities.

Visitors can enjoy the cultural diversity of the embassies of Bahrain, Bangladesh, Benin and Brazil. From “A” (Australia) to Z (Zambia), each embassy will feature its own potpourri of culture from cuisine to artisan markets, traditional music to dance, and other activities for the whole family.
