13th Annual Parade of Trabants

November 9, 2019
From: 10:00 AM to 04:00 PM

The ONLY Trabant Rally in the United States!

The Parade of Trabants is on the move all the way to our new location!  We’re celebrating the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall with our favorite Cold War car—the Trabant. Despite their questionable performance and smoky two-stroke engines, these little cars are now affectionately regarded as a symbol of East Germany and the fall of Communism.

Trabants are a rarity here, but on November 9 some of the finest examples in the US will chug their way to the International Spy Museum to celebrate our Thirteenth Annual Parade of Trabants. Drop in to view the vintage cars, which will be parked around the Museum on L’Enfant Plaza, SW, and enter a raffle to win a ride in a Trabant.

While the cars are on display, experts will be on hand to answer questions about Trabants, the Cold War, and Communism, while the Alte Kameraden German Band provides festive music. You can even take a photo with our friendly Stasi officer. Try your hand at graffiti Berlin-style and see if you can fit into the tiny spaces like those escaping from East Berlin did.
