You are kindly invited to the Netherlands Embassy for delicious Dutch fries, stroopwafels, and Heineken. These you may know. But we’re so much more. Visit us to learn about the Dutch in a fun and creative way. Did we mention the DJ? Yeah, we have one of those too!

About EU Open House

This event falls every year on the first Saturday after Europe Day on May 9. This date marks the signing of the Schuman Declaration on May 9, 1950, which established the European Coal and Steel Community, a multinational entity that would eventually become the European Union as we know it today.

We celebrate Europe Day by opening our doors to the public so that Americans can catch a glimpse of the European cultures that make up the European Union. Normally you have to cross the Atlantic to visit the EU, but at Open House, you just have to cross the street!
