Souq el Arabi: 16th Annual Arab Cultural Festival
On October 2nd, San Francisco's Arab Cultural & Community Center will present our 16th Annual Arab Cultural Festival, the largest celebration of Arab heritage in Northern California. Since 1995, this day-long event showcases the arts, entertainment, food, traditions, and most importantly the spirit of the Arab-Americans, reflecting their diversity and contributions to the Bay Area's cultural landscape.

As October has officially been declared Arab Heritage Month by Mayor Gavin Newsome, this event is the perfect forum to come celebrate and learn more about Arab-American culture. This year's theme is Souq el Arabi and the Festival will transform Union Square into a traditional open market place you would normally only find in the Arab World. Don't miss your chance to take part in this entertaining and enlightening event!
