The seventh Arab Festival takes place the weekend of October 8 & 9 at Seattle Center. Every other year since 1999, the Arab Center of Washington has offered an insider’s view to the unique cultures of the Arab world. Music, dance, food, coffee, children’s activities, fashion show, Arabic spelling bee, and a bazaar add festivity and present the human dimension of Arab-American life. Performers will perform music and dance that is both traditional and 21st century. Outdoor spaces are intended for socializing, and will feature booths, food, and Arabic coffeehouse.
