Olympia's Arab Festival Celebration

Sat, 10/06/2012 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

The Rachel Corrie Foundation for Peace & Justice will host Olympia's first Arab Festival, Oct. 5-7. Arab Fest is a full weekend event featuring Arab artists, educational tables, children's activities, food, music, dance, films and more!  Saturday evening features a lively show of Arab comedy and spoken word performances ($10 students; $15 general). Khaled the Comic, who has toured throughout the US, Canada, and the Middle East will top off Saturday night with a performance at The Olympia Center, 7pm. He will be joined by Yusra Khogali, Sudanese-Canadian spoken word artist and NF, Saudi Arabianhip hop artist from D.C.

We invite our community to celebrate and experience the food, culture, traditions, lifestyles and peoples of the Arab world in a joyous and authentic manner. This event focuses on the diversity and complexity of the Arab peoples by challenging stereotypes, showcasing Arab arts and performance, and celebrating diversity within our community. As stated by Farihan Bushnaq, a local Arab-American community member, "The Arabs are known for their love of poetry, their generosity and for welcoming the foreign visitor. The best way to dispel the negative image of the Arabs is to pay them a visit." Make Arab Fest one of your Arts Walk stops!
