Last year over 3,000 people joined us for the first-ever Palestine Festival in Memphis. The response was tremendous! We heard you loud and clear Memphis… you want more! Our festival planning committee has been working hard to make this year an even better authentic cultural experience!

Join us for the 2nd Annual Palestine Festival in Memphis, TN on April 29 from 10-3pm in Overton Park- Greensward. The Festival will feature traditional Palestinian cuisine, music, dabke (dancing), fashion show, traditional clothing photo booth along with other cultural activities and vendors.  Admission to the festival is free but please bring some cash for the various vendors.

This festival is organized by a dedicated group of volunteers and possible with the generous support from the local community of individuals, small businesses and organizations.
