About This Festival
From the Organizer
Year after year, the Saint Rafka Church Annual Festival provides an opportunity for families to come together and celebrate the beautiful aspects of Middle-Eastern and American culture together in one place. This much loved, two-day event draws people from miles around to enjoy the best of our music, cuisine, and culture. Nationally acclaimed musicians perform alongside our teen folk dance groups for a unique event that showcases a wide range of talents and entertainment styles. Traditional Middle-Eastern family recipes are prepared by our own parishioners and served with the hospitality that is a trademark of our community. Throughout the festival, children’s activities such as face painting, bounce houses and train rides make our event one the whole family can enjoy. Entertainment for the adults includes a hookah lounge, premium bar, oxygen bar, Arabic Dancing, Henna Tattoos, a gift shop and live music Saturday and Sunday featuring 50 Amp Fuse, Emad Batayeh, Exit 69 and Usama Baalbaki.
