This year marks the 85th year since the founding of our parish, and we are excited to celebrate this milestone with our Wichita community this May at the 2017 Mediterranean Festival. Sharing our heritage through public dinners and bake sales has been an important and continuous part of our parish life and outreach since our founding, and we look forward to continuing that tradition with the 2017 Mediterranean Festival.

We have several exciting things in store for this year, including a Friday night event (known as a “hafli” in Arabic.) Join us for an evening of food, fun, music, and dancing! Our live, professional DJ will be playing a highly curated selection of ethnic music while guests join together for traditional “dubke” dancing. It's easy to learn and fun for all ages! We will be serving a select menu of food which will include a unique selection of ethnic wine and beer. Admission is free and will be an all ages event you don't want to miss!

Day two of our event is jam packed with great things, most especially our large a la carte menu featuring dishes from Lebanon, Syria, Greece, & Serbia. We are excited to be adding a unique selection of ethnic wine and beer to our menu this year. Guests can join us for lunch or dinner (many come for both!) dine in or carry out, and eat inside or outside under our covered tent. All items are a la carte, so bring your friends and try a little bit of everything!

Use the navigation to the right to explore the many things we have to offer at the Festival, including our full menu, shopping, activities, and the local charity we will be supporting this year. We look forward to seeing you in May!
