Upcoming Events

Thursday, July 12-15

On July 12-15, come see why the Middle Eastern Festival at St. Elias Church keeps breaking its previous attendance records! Discover exciting new tastes in the Arabic culinary world like the awesome Arabic Panini Sandwiches, zesty Man’ousheh Pizzas, along with our wildly successful signature Garlic Dip accompaniment, then cool down with Middle Eastern pistachio ice cream! Or select an old favorite amongst our more traditional dishes like the grilled to perfection Tenderloin Shish Kebobs, the blend of choice flavors of the Shawarma, the savory lemony stuffed Grapeleaves and Tabouli salad, and be sure to save room for the syrupy-sweet Baklawa and Zalaby! Brand new this year: Massaya Arak (Lebanese brandy) on the wine menu at the Festival Bar.
Live Arabic music and the popular St. Elias Debkeh Dancers will bring the crowds to their feet! The Souk Marketplace inside the church hall will feature a variety Middle Eastern giftware. There’s even a playground for the kids to enjoy!
Onondaga Hill will be where all the action is on the weekend of July 12th! So come, treat your taste buds to this showcase of the Arabic culture that has been a Syracuse tradition for 89 years! There’s FREE parking and FREE admission!
