Arab World Fest

Matthew Reddin, Contributing writer

After a hiatus of several years due to conflicts with the observance of Ramadan, Arab World Fest returns to the Summerfest grounds this for a celebration of the music, food and culture of the Middle East (see story page 8). This year’s nonpolitical, nonreligious event is dedicated to the theme of family. Organizers encourage visitors to bring along their young ones for three days of camel rides and exhibits detailing the history of the 22 Arab countries represented.

Admission is $10. For information, visit

Aug. 8–10
