It’s been on a 2-year hiatus but returns on October 9 and 10. St. George’s Cathedral’s Lebanese Dinner & Food Sale has finally returned. It’s been one of the longest running food events in town that has taken place for nearly 90 years.
The Lebanese dinner has been an October event that’s drawn in over 5,000 people. It takes place at the St. George Orthodox Christian Cathedral at 7515 E. 13th St. which is just west of Rock Road on 13th Street.
The event runs from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, October 9 and from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday, October 10. Tickets to the dinner which can be purchased via this link are $20 for adults and $15 for kids. A ticket gets you a plated meal that features the menu and recipes chosen by their sittis (Arabic for grandmother) almost 100 years ago.
On the day of the sale, you can come inside and shop their kitchen which has a selection of international pastries, breads and desserts from around the world – Lebanon, Ethiopia, Russia, Syria, Greece, as well as American classics. They will have such items as baklawa, kibba, grapeleaves, cabbage rolls, salad dressing, ruz and yuknee and pita bread. Quantities are limited, so you’ll want to get there early.
If you love tradition, Lebanese food and taking in some culture, this is one of the best events for it. For more information, check out their Facebook event.
