Lebanese Heritage Days

Date(s) - 08/03/2024
5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Our Lady of Lebanon Church




On Saturday, August 3rd from 5pm until midnight and Sunday, August 4th from
11am until 10pm, the parish community of Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite Catholic Church in
Easton, PA will celebrate its annual Lebanese Heritage Days festival.
The festival was established more than four decades ago to recognize and commemorate
the rich traditions of the Lebanese-American community in Easton.

Rain or shine, Lebanese Heritage Days have become one of downtown Easton’s leading
summer events. Each year, the festival draws thousands of people to the church parking lot
at South 4th and Ferry Streets, festooned with brightly colored tents and replete with the
aroma and sounds of a traditional Lebanese celebration.

In addition to the delectable Lebanese fare, which includes (but certainly is not limited to)
hummous (chick pea dip) and tabbouli (fresh vegetable and bulgar wheat salad) and grilled
items such as shish kabob and chicken with garlic sauce, the grounds come alive this year
with the sounds of Said Abi Aki on Saturday and Kalem Issa on Sunday. Mass will be
celebrated prior to the start of the festival on both days inside the church: Saturday, August
3rd at 4pm and Sunday, August 4th at 10am. All are welcome to attend.
The highlight of the weekend, however, is the performances of the children’s ethnic dance
troupes on Saturday and Sunday evenings.

There are also lots of enjoyable things to do for the entire family, such as children’s activities
and games, souvenir shopping and much, much more. Credit/debit cards and Venmo will be
accepted for many food items and souvenirs.

This year’s annual raffle will feature a Grand Prize of $10,000.
