The Los Angeles Mediterranean Festival started in 1996. It is has been held annually (except for 2001 because of “9/11”) on the premises of the St. Nicholas Antiochian Orthodox Christian Cathedral (Cathedral).  Every year the attendance becomes larger.  This is the result of more people becoming familiar with the event and also drawing people from the neighborhood. 



The Festival was established as a fundraising event.  One of the major benefits has been to encourage all of the youth to the elderly of our Cathedral to work together to promote our cultural and religious heritage.

The annual Los Angeles Mediterranean Festival is a celebration of Mediterranean/ Middle Eastern culture with authentic foods, traditional dancing, and entertainment. Live Arabic music performed by prominent artists, singing traditional and popular songs. Enjoy delicious Mediterranean/ Middle Eastern cuisine. Explore the vendor’s market place. Exciting games for kids, face painting and much more…. We have church tour, If you would like to learn more about the Holy Orthodox Christian Faith, these tours are given by our Priests. Truly a great fun day for the entire family!
