Festival History

In 2006, Alif Institute organized its first Arab American Family Day. The event featured educational displays about the Arab culture and Arab Americans, live music performance, folk dancing, traditional Arab costumes show, and various activities for children.

In 2010, the Family Day was grown to a two day event and renamed Atlanta Arab Festival. The Festival also included the participation of local artists, food providers, businesses and organizations.

Over the years, the event became an annual tradition that the community enjoys and looks forward to. In 2013, the Atlanta Arab Festival grew in numbers and drew over 3,500 attendees, more than double the number reached in 2010!

Continuing in it’s path of growth, 2017 was the biggest year ever! Over 5,000 visitors enjoyed the largest selection of restaurants, vendors, children’s activities, and performances! Several community/humanitarian organizations joined the festival and contributed to educate and engage the public. On the festival stage the performance by the National Arab Orchestra musicians impressed everyone. After all of these wonderful activities, Atlanta Arab Festival guests were able to relax in the largest, authentic Arabian tent in Atlanta!
