Arab International Festival

Arab International Festival

Mid-June
The Arab International Festival takes place annually over a three-day weekend in mid-June in Dearborn, Mich. Dearborn's eastern section is noted for its large Arab-American population as well as Arab restaurants, bakeries, and businesses.
The festival was founded in 1996 to showcase and celebrate the heritage and culture of the area's Arab-American residents, as well as the diverse backgrounds of the people of metropolitan Detroit. Ethnic music, performances, food, and merchandise are all featured at the festival, along with amusement rides and such pastimes as coffee-cup reading and henna treatments. As many as 300,000 people have attended the non-alcoholic, family-oriented festival during its opening hours from Friday evening to Sunday night. The festival's sponsors are the local American Arab Chamber of Commerce, the Arab Community Center for Education and Social Services (ACCESS), and the city of Dearborn.
