MONTEBELLO—On Saturday, May 19, the Armenian Food Fair and Festival will return to the grounds of the Holy Cross Cathedral located at 900 West Lincoln Avenue in Montebello. Now in its 10th year, the annual event will take place from 2 to 10 p.m., and will feature authentic Armenian food, music, entertainment, and activities for all ages.
