Apply now to promote your business at the Atlanta Arab Festival!

The Atlanta Arab Festival is an annual event designed to celebrate Arab cultures, to showcase Arab and Arab-American heritage, and most importantly, to promote and enhance cultural exchange.

The event draws a wide number of Americans and Arab- Americans from the Atlanta metropolitan area and from around the state. Over the past 13 years, the number of attendees has steadily increased, from about 300 attendees in the first years to over 5,000 in 2017.

Festival participants include many local restaurants and caterers, several businesses and visual artists, and a wide range of performing artists.This annual event is becoming an Atlanta tradition and continues to gain momentum. Adult and children alike enjoy the delicious food, the unique performances, the rich cultural exhibits, the engaging games and activities, and a real taste of Arab culture. Each year the festival introduces new activities and performances to enrich the experience of all attendees.

This year we have added new activities and expect our highest attendance rate yet.

The Atlanta Arab Festival is organized by Alif Institute, a nonprofit, tax-exempt, educational and cultural organization. Alif Institute’s mission is to foster understanding and appreciation of Arab culture; our vision is one world united by the power of arts, culture, and education. Since its founding in 2004, Alif Institute has been offering Arabic language classes along with a multitude of cultural activities including, but not limited to, film screenings, art exhibits, concerts of renowned artists, and lectures by various researchers and authors. The Institute and all of its events are open to the general public and people from all backgrounds are welcome.
