Discover new flavors or satisfy your cravings for old ones when you sample some of the delicious fare at the 21st Annual St. Elias Lebanese Food and Cultural Festival. This highly anticipated event is scheduled for April 26 and 27 this year and is gearing up to be the best one yet. Located at St. Elias Maronite Catholic Church, 836 8th Street South, the festival is a can’t-miss event for those who love great food and rich culture.
This free-to-attend event will introduce you to a huge array of Lebanese delicacies.

Dishes range from $3 for à la carte options to upwards of $25 for sampler platters. Debit and credit cards are accepted, and delivery orders can be submitted online for those who can’t make the festival but don’t want to miss the food.
