10th & Ellsworth Streets
The annual tradition – a neighborhood festival featuring authentic Lebanese foods and traditional dancing – returns June 13-15 to the streets at 10th and Ellsworth. It is the 39th year for the festival at St. Maron’s Maronite Catholic Church, one of the oldest such parishes in the nation.
The menu includes traditional Lebanese favorites such as luscious kebobs, hommous, baba gannouj, baklava and more. Last year’s festival served more than 60 legs of lamb, 100 pounds of beef for Kafta kebobs, 100 pounds of Falafel, 360 lbs. of chicken, 500 spinach pies, 2,100 pounds of pita bread, 4,400 stuffed grape leaves and more.
Come sample a full bar featuring wine and spirits as well as Almaza, a favorite beer in Lebanon. This mild and smooth Pilsner style beer is brewed and bottled by Brassierie Almaza, and pairs perfectly with the festival’s ethnic cuisine.
Other festival highlights include live entertainment Amin Sultan and the Sultans. Also, Dabke dance groups. As always, the festival will include a kid’s zone where families with children can enjoy and participate in dancing, games, face painting and other family-friendly activities.
