Check out our new arts and culture video series, The Arts District, which shines a light on incredible arts and culture experiences including mural art, music, dance, museums and theaters. Thanks in part to your efforts sharing the series, The Arts District videos have all together generated more than 200,000 views on Facebook and YouTube. We’ll continue to promote the series throughout the year.
Gear up for Passport DC, which runs from May 1-31 and has several prominent events coming up: the free Around the World Embassy Tour (May 5), the free European Union Open House (May 12), the Events DC Embassy Chef Challenge presented by TCMA (May 17) and the Fiesta Asia Street Fair (May 19).
Congratulations to both the Washington Capitals and the Washington Wizards on reaching the playoffs. Capital One Arena will be rocking in the coming weeks as the teams attempt to bring a professional sports title (or two) to the District.
Finally, we will be announcing 2017 domestic visitation numbers and tourism’s economic impact on our city during our annual Travel Rally on May 9, held in conjunction with the U.S. Travel Association in honor of National Travel and Tourism Week. More details to come.
