Second Annual Lebanese Festival: October 5th 2024

St. Sharbel Maronite Catholic Church’s Lebanese Festival started out of an idea to bring the community together to introduce and celebrate Lebanese food, entertainment, and culture. We are looking forward to our 2nd Annual Lebanese Festival, to enjoy our togetherness and uniqueness. We invite you to become a part of a wonderful, cultural experience. The festival is a major parish fundraiser. A portion of the net proceeds of the festival will be donated to St. Jude.

The Festival Committee is hard at work. Information about the festival will be posted as plans get finalized. Come back and see us!

MENU

No Lebanese festival is complete without the refreshing and earthly authentic food we grew up feasting on and savoring. Our main food vendor will be Serop’s Café of Corporate Blvd. serving the aromatic shawarma and gyros alongside hummus full of the perfect hint of zesty lemon and garlic, and pita bread. Members of our local community will share their amazing gifts of cooking and baking. Traditional Lebanese Saj, Spinach Pies, Lebanese pastries, like Baklava and Namoura, will satisfy both savory and sweet cravings. Lebanese tea by Serop’s Café, Lebanese coffee, and soft drinks will also be available.
