Syria Fest in D.C. 2018
September 2 @ 11:00 am - 7:00 pmFree
“Following last year’s successful Syria Fest, the largest ever Syrian cultural festival in the United States, the Syrian Cultural House invites you to join us again for the second annual Syria Fest, a free family-friendly outdoors cultural festival showcasing the beauty of Syria and its people. The Syria Fest will take place on September 2 from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm.
From the markets of Damascus, the music of Aleppo, the sweets of Hama, and more, the Syria Fest will bring Syrian heritage, culture, and cuisine to the heart of our nation’s capital. The Syria Fest aims to bring friends and family of many different backgrounds together over delectable food, nostalgic musical and dance performances, enlightening cultural discussions, and engaging games and activities for kids. Come learn why Syrians are renowned in the Middle East for their expert art, craftwork, and culinary traditions passed down for generations. Explore each region of Syria, the home of many ethnic and religious groups, through authentic experiences organized and presented by Syrian-Americans, Syrian immigrants, and recently-arrived Syrian refugees, and their friends.
The Syrian Cultural House hopes that this year’s Syria Fest will leave you with a newfound appreciation for the centuries-long history and culture of Syria and its diverse and hardworking people who are a part of the American fabric and the DC area.”
