From a press release:
“Events DC presents a Cultural Tourism DC signature event, Passport DC—a month-long celebration in May comprising international programs and events around Washington, DC. Visitors and residents have the opportunity to travel around the world without ever leaving the city. Last year, tours of nearly 70 embassies and hundreds of international cultural activities, including street festivals, performances and exhibitions, entertained and educated visitors as they took part in the festivities.
“Passport DC is a profound way for people to learn by experience. It provides a uniquely DC opportunity for people to uncover the similarities among nations across the globe and compare their art, dance, music, textiles, food and so much more. It showcases a fascinating array of customs from around the globe,” said Cultural Tourism DC Executive Director Steve Shulman.
