Upcoming: Armenian Festival

If you think borek is one of Sascha Baron Cohen’s characters, then do we have a surprise for you! Borek is just one of the tasty treats you can enjoy at the 5th annual Armenian Food Fair and Festival. For the uninitiated, Armenian food has familiar elements from Russian and Greek cooking, with kabobs and lots of delicious pastries.

The festival opens at noon and entertainment gets started at 1:30pm with dancers from the Alex Dance Studio. Other events include a backgammon tournament, raffles, live music, , and a cooking demo. Another interestinglooking event is the Sarma Challenge. Sarma are stuffed grape leaves. Who makes the best sarma in LA? Find out Saturday.

Adult entry is a nominal fee of $2 and kids under 12 get in free. The Holy Cross Cathedral is located at 900 West Lincoln Avenue, Montebello, CA.  For more information, please visit the Festival web site or call (323) 314-1375.
