The Arab Festival is almost here! If you haven’t done so already, please mark your calendars for October 12-13, 2013. The festival will be open from 11am-7pm each day and will be held in both the Fisher Pavilion and the Armory (Center House). Don’t miss Simon Shaheen and Ensemble on Saturday or the Arabic Melodies (from Portland, OR) on Sunday. Local performers include: Fathia Atallah, George Sadak, House of Tarab, Maurice Rouman, Naseem Band… and many more!
We have two exhibits this year as well: the “A is for Arab” Exhibit created by Jack Shaheen and “Faraway Eyes” a photography exhibit presented by Dar Safi Publishing of Bellevue. Both exhibits will be in the Armory: A is for Arab will be on the main floor and Faraway Eyes will be in the Exhibit Room near the mainstage landing.
Don’t miss the family activities – upstairs in the Armory just above the stage.
