Enjoy unique live performances on the stage. Embark on a culinary tour at the Arab world food court. Shop for little treasures at the bustling souk. Explore fun activities and enjoy games and rides. Then, when you feel like relaxing, visit one of the exhibits on display or enjoy a unique experience in an Arabian tent sipping Arabic coffee!

New this year is a Photo Contest: What Arab Cultures Mean to Me. Submit your original photo with a short explanation of how the photo reminds you of Arab cultures. Note that by submitting your photo you are agreeing that Alif Institute has the right to use it in the future (with attribution). The winners of the contest will have their photographs printed and displayed at our 14th Annual Atlanta Arab Festival!

The festival will also have a Kids’, Talent Show! The talent show is open to all kids aged 12 and under who can give a performance with a connection to Arab cultures. Contestants who are selected will perform at the 14th Annual Atlanta Arab Festival!

The Alif Institute was established in 2004 by the Arab-American Fund of Georgia Inc. in Atlanta, Georgia. AAFG is a non-profit organization that promotes awareness about the Arab Middle East. The Alif Institute’s vision is to connect humanity through the power of arts and culture. Its mission is to foster the understanding and appreciation of Arab cultures.
