Outside With EU

This month, join the EU Delegation and Member States’ embassies in Washington, D.C., as we celebrate Europe outside!

Starting on May 8 and lasting all month long, Outside With EU offers fun ways to get outside and take the EU with you. We will kick off the celebration on May 8 with our virtual concert experience “Europe House Live,” featuring performances from various European musical acts.

From May 9-31, anyone in the Washington area is welcome to participate in a scavenger hunt of European cultural sites around the city. We’re also offering a special series of podcast episodes that anyone can enjoy about outdoor activities in Europe.
