Detroit's Annual Celebration of Arabic Culture and People

Two days full of food, fashion, art, history and music. The annual Arab and Chaldean Festival is an ethnic extravaganza of epic proportions. Typically taking place in July at Hart Plaza in downtown Detroit, this event attracts thousands of people of all ages to learn more about the Middle East and experience Arabic culture in living color.

The festival features a variety of Arab and Chaldean food, cultural gallery exhibits and an impressive list of Middle Eastern live performers and entertainment programs. Folklore Dance troupes and a fashion show representing different attire from all of the Arab countries are also part of the two-day event's lineup.

Every year, this venue showcases multiple exhibits that give an insider's view on Arabic culture, from medicine and folklore to customs and much more.
