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 and bounce houses make our event one the whole family can enjoy. Entertainment for the adults includes a hookah lounge, Arabic Dancing, Henna Tattoos, a gift shop and live performances Saturday and Sunday evenings featuring 50 Amp Fuse, Emad Batayeh, Exit 69 and Usama Baalbaki.
