The St. Elias Middle Eastern Festival is set for July 11th through the 14th celebrating its 90th anniversary.
The festival will feature live Arabic music, dance performances, a full-course menu of Middle Eastern food made from scratch, and more.
“Each day we have a special dish that goes on until supplies last,” says Grace Khairallah, head of the festival’s culinary team.
Daily specials offered will include kafta, za’ater, lahm bi ajeen, and musakhan. Specials will come on a platter with rice, grape leaves, hummus, and labneh yogurt.
The festival will have free parking and free admission. The event is also family friendly and offers a kid zone as well as a kid-friendly menu. There will be an on-site atm, though the festival will accept credit cards.
Hours for the festival are July 11th-12th from 4pm to 10pm, July 13th from 12pm to 10pm, and July 14th from 12pm to 6pm. For more information and to view the menu for the festival, visit SyracuseMidEastFest.com.
