Holy Cross Armenian Church, Union City, NJ hosts its Annual Bazaar and Food Festival Saturday, November 1st

The Kalajian and Dabbakian families have deep roots in New Jersey. Holy Cross Armenian Church in Union City, NJ was the site of both Doug’s parents and my parents marriages in 1942 - just two weeks apart from each other!

As children, Doug and I both attended numerous functions at this church with our respective families as did those whose ancestors came from the region of Dikranagerd.

When I received a recent email announcing the 2014 Food Festival at Holy Cross Church, I knew I had to post it. 

Who can come? Anyone in the NY-NJ metropolitan area (even out-of-town visitors!) can attend the annual bazaar and food festival this coming Saturday, November 1st.  Admission is FREE!

What time? The event begins at 5 PM with a Halloween party for children. Dinner, the main attraction, follows at 6PM.
The festivities end around 10 PM, or maybe 11PM - you know, Armenian time!!

What's on the menu? Well, for one thing ...  KAVOURMA, a very Dikranagerdtsi specialty, and an array of Armenian deliciousness to delight even the fussiest diner. (See the poster above for more details.)

 A word of warning: Don't come too late; allow plenty of time to eat - and - be entertained by DJ Berj.

So, if you’re in the area, stop by for lots of food and family fun! And please have some kavourma for Doug and me! (And tell them The Armenian sent you!)
