GLENDALE–The exciting Armenian Relief Society Armenian Cultural and Food Festival was held over the weekend, at the Glendale Civic Auditorium.
The festival transported participants into an atmosphere of Armenian hospitality and culture where they enjoyed traditional festivities and an Armenian Traditional Costume Show and among other activities learned how to make Lavash and Armenian cheese.
Also part of the attraction was the reenactment of a traditional Armenian wedding down to the music and entertainment.
The festival is an ideal place to bring three generations of families together to have a relaxing and enjoyable outing, where Armenian music, art, dance, history, culinary heritage and children’s games can be enjoyed under one roof. Much of the interesting programming enjoyed by Armenia’s and non-Armenia’s alike will return, along with expansion of activities and games for young children.
“I am excited to see the 7th year of a small idea turn into a huge success ‘s Thanks to our hard working volunteers. Seven years ago we wanted to share our anniversary celebrations not only with our members but with our community, the community which we have been serving for the past 98 years,”.expressed Sonia Bedrossian-Peltekian, Chair of the ARS of Western U.S.A., Regional Executive Board.
