EU Open House 2022
Get to know Spanish culture through its art, gastronomy, and much more as European Union Embassies open their doors to share European culture with Washington, D.C. in this free event open to all.
Visit Spain without leaving DC (and enter to win a ticket to visit Spain yourself)! Come see us on Saturday, May 14, as part of the EU Open House. Together with our European partners in DC, we’ll be showing off all that Spain and Europe have to offer at the Former Residence of the Ambassadors of Spain, for free and with no need to register.
Culture, food, and fun
Sample Spain with a plate of paella, a pintxo of tortilla española (Spanish omelette), a sip of a refreshing Spanish beer, or a taste of some delicious chorizo! Join us for Flamenco performances throughout the day (11:30 am and 1 pm) courtesy of TorcuArt, plan your next trip with the Spanish Tourism Office, and enter for a chance to win a free flight to Spain on Iberia!
An event for the whole family
We want people of all ages to enjoy and learn about everything Spain has to offer! From bracelets, face paint, and Spanish “passport” stamps to science experiments led by ECUSA, the Association of Spanish Scientists in the United States, your kids will have their very own place at our Open House.
