FAMILY FUN – European Union Embassies’ Open House
On May 13th, 2017 the European Union Embassies and the EU Delegation to the United States will open their doors to the public for the annual EU Embassies’ Open House: a day of family fun, food, culture and more. The event offers visitors a rare look inside the embassies and provides a unique opportunity for experiencing the cultural heritage and national traditions of the 28 member countries.
Visit House of Sweden to learn how to dance traditional Swedish Folk Dance and Ask a Swede something you’ve always wondered about our Scandinavian country. Enjoy Jazz music and traditional Swedish tunes, and bring your little ones to Room For Children and listen to readings from Sweden’s favorite children’s books. You can also get your face painted and try your luck at a Fish Pond, or why not experience the sensation of driving a truck in our Volvo Truck Simulator?
Swedish short films are playing all day, our exhibitions are open and on display, and there will be lots of Swedish Fika for visitors craving something sweet. A cup of coffee or lemonade can be enjoyed with a view, since we are opening up our roof top for all visitors!
Welcome to an open house filled with family fun and culture. A house full of Sweden!
Doors will be open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
