JOURNEY INTO THE ARAB WORLD AT LARGEST
ARAB CULTURAL FESTIVAL IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA
The Arab Cultural and Community Center is proud to present “Lissa Faker” (“Do You Still Remember”), the 12th Annual Arab Cultural Festival, an event that marks the largest celebration of Arab heritage in Northern California. Join us on this daylong gathering on September 17th to commemorate the arts, entertainment, food, traditions, and most importantly the spirit of the Arab people. Considering the crisis in the Arab World, we feel it is important to continue to hold the Festival to show the resilience of the Arab people and culture to thrive despite all odds.
The festival is a nostalgic experience for the Arab-American community as it features traditional artists and performances reflecting the diverse cultures of the Arab World. For the larger San Francisco Bay Area Community the festival is a reminder of how harmoniously the Arab culture blends with the overall diversity that the Bay Area takes pride in.
Featured Entertainment includes: Folk singers, North African music by the Dunes, a “Turbo Tabla” performance by Karim Nagi, Hip-Hop by The Philistines, Comedy by Gina Mahmoud, Debkeh by Al-Juzoor, Fashion show of traditional Arab clothing, and much more!
Booth Bazaar includes: Antique jewelry from the Arab World, Arabic Cuisine, Henna, informational booths for many Arab non-profit organizations, Artwork by Arab artist, a Children’s Activity Booth and the list goes on…
