Now in its 7th year, the European Month of Culture (EUMoC) brings the best of European culture to Washington, DC during the entire month of May. With over 60 musical performances, art exhibits and tours, film screenings, and lectures at venues across the city, there is no better way to illustrate the European tradition of joining forces, than to combine the rich heritage of each European Union Member State into a month of cultural offerings. Most of the events are free, however some do require purchasing a ticket.

Concerts big and small; exhibitions on history and art; conversations with actors, authors, directors – EUMoC, presented by the 28 European Union Member States and the EU Delegation to the United States, offers everything from fashion to jazz, literary evenings to cutting-edge European films, music, photography, lectures, workshops, and more. These events radiate out from Europe Day (May 9), which commemorates the historic Declaration that led to the formation of the EU.
