The Embassy participated in the fifth anniversary of the Passport DC “Around the World Embassy Tour” on May 5. Hundreds of visitors attended the event and were welcomed by Embassy staff and Saudi students. Attendees experienced an afternoon of Saudi culture including traditional food, clothing and musical performances. This year’s event also included various displays, such as an exhibit by Saudi artists.
More than 40 embassies took part in the Tour, which kicked off a month of Passport DC events. The festivities are organized by Cultural Tourism DC, an independent coalition of more than 230 cultural, heritage and community-based member organizations.
