Parade of Trabants

Location Spy Museum, 700 L'Enfant Plaza, Washington, DC, USA
Date November 13, 2021

15th annual Parade of Trabants

Celebrate the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall with everyone’s favorite Cold War car—the Trabant. Despite their questionable performance and smoky two-stroke engines, these little cars are now affectionately regarded as a symbol of East Germany and the fall of Communism. Trabants are a rarity here, but on November 13 some of the finest examples in the US will chug their way to the International Spy Museum to celebrate our Fifteenth Annual Parade of Trabants.

Drop in to view the famous “cardboard” cars and other vintage Cold War automobiles and scooters which will be parked around the Museum on L’Enfant Plaza, SW. Enter a raffle to win a ride in a Trabant if you dare. While the cars are on display, experts will be on hand to answer questions about their sweet rides, the Cold War, and Communism, while the Alte Kameraden German Band provides festive music. Try your hand at graffiti Berlin-style, and see if you can fit into the tiny spaces like those escaping from East Berlin did.
