Anatolian Festival Coming Back to OC, May 6-9

Whirling Dervishes, Anatolian architectural recreations, art, music and, of course, food.  And wait...a big Orange balloon?  Yes, this year's Anatolian Cultures & Food Festival, being held May 6th-9th, will move from the Orange County Fairgrounds to the Orange County Great Park.  If you think eccentric French-Canadian circus acts made the former El Toro interesting, you ain't seen nothin' yet.

I know for sure that the owner of Doner G, Yalcin Alsan, will be there, serving his doner kebab and my favorite, adana kebab.   How do I know?  He e-mailed me about it and when you eat at his restaurant, you can't miss the booklets he's placed on every table to commemorate and hype up the event.

Tickets are $12 for general admission, less for kids and seniors.  Check out for more info.
