At this year’s Armenian Fest, held rain or shine 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday, July 23, on the grounds of St. John the Baptist Armenian Orthodox Church, 7825 W. Layton Ave., the menu will include chicken and beef kebob, cheese and spinach burek, lahmajoun (a pizza-like meat dish served on thin tortilla dough), humus (a dip made of chick peas), tabouleh (a green salad without lettuce), choreg (bread sticks), vegetarian and meat sarma (stuffed grape leaves) and a mouthwatering array of baklava and other traditional pastries.

This year we are fortunate to have a group of the Hamazkayin Sardarabad Dance Ensemble of Chicago to perform for us at our Annual Milwaukee Armenian Fest.

On Oct. 8, 2016, Wisconsin was treated to a rare opportunity to witness Armenian dance traditions presented with contemporary flair. Over eighty-five dancers from the Sardarabad Dance Ensemble of Hamazkayin Chicago and the Arax Dance Group of Hamazkayin Detroit took the stage at the South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center in a performance whose focus was the resilience of Armenia’s people and culture.

The Hamazkayin Sardarabad dancers will entertain the Milwaukee Armenian festivalgoers to a rare treat at 1:30pm and 3:30 pm (tentative times)

Admission is Free
