For those whose only exposure to Armenian culture is Zankou Chicken (actually, not a bad start), here's a chance to widen your perspective.
This weekend (Saturday, September 13th from 12 PM-10 PM, and Sunday, September 14th from 12 PM – 8 PM), the 4th Annual Armenian Festival will be held at the Laguna Hills Community Center at:
25555 Alicia Pkwy.
Laguna Hills, CA 92653
(at Paseo de Valencia)
Parking is free. Admission is $5. Children under 12, free.
There will be arts and crafts, music and folk dancing, and of course, food!
What kind of grub can you expect? Shish kebabs. Soujoukh Sandwiches. Armenian pizza. Sourj coffee. Armenian pastries and baklava.
No word if they will have that magical garlic paste that Zankou makes..
