Bring the whole family and join us in celebrating the 24th Annual Assyrian Food Festival: The Celebration Continues! This two-day event will feature traditional Assyrian food (real kabobs!); live music, dancing, and entertainment; a wine bar; the original Samovar Alley featuring exotic teas, coffee, and pastries; arts, crafts, and exhibits; vendors from all over the world; and a Kids' Zone, as well as $10 Raffle for a chance to win one of the Great Raffle Prizes. It’s a great deal of fun!!! ( Watch our YouTube videos in Assyrian or English)

The Annual Assyrian Food Festival is an opportunity to showcase Assyrian food, traditions and educate the community about the Assyrian heritage as well as to preserve and to continue passing on Assyrian cultural traditions to the next generation. If you enjoy trying authentic food, music, and dance, make plans to attend the festival! You can mingle with and learn about the people whose ancestral homeland is known in history as the cradle of civilization.
