Balloon Drop at our 2023 New Year’s Eve Gala at the Willard. The International Club of DC wishes you, peace, joy, and much success in the New Year! We are busy planning an exciting selection of cultural events with our embassy partners along with other cultural events, dance soirees, and galas! We look forward to welcoming you to an event in 2023!

Wonderful behind-the-scenes tour! When the lions began roaring at each other, while we stood five feet away, and the cement floor shook with the incredible rumbling of their roars -- that's a life-long memory. And bravo for your usual care in arranging the event. For example, everyplace that serves "white or red" nearly always offers just Chardonnay (and red plonk); you had a Sauvignon as well. Thanks for another great event!
