Authentic Armenian food, dancing, music, and games.Over the years, Evanston' s TASTE OF ARMENIA festival--one of the premiere Armenian picnics in the Chicago area-- has become a favorite end-of-summer event for Chicagoans of all ethnic backgrounds.
Late August (the last Sunday before Labor Day weekend). Clark St. between Benson and Sherman. Sponsored by the St. James Armenian Church. Free.
The Evanston Taste of Armenia Festivalserves up charcoal-grilled kebabs and homemade specialties including healthy salads, 'sarma' rolls with fresh-picked grape leaves (nothing canned!) Few can resist the bountiful table of our grandmas' pastries and a steaming cup of Armenian coffee (fortunes told on request!)
The largest annual Armenian gathering in Chicago, Evanston's Taste of Armenia Festival serves up a full plate of Armenian cuisine, culture and history. All are welcome to come enjoy the day.
The mission of the Armenian Apostolic Orthodox Church is to preach the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and to proclaim its message of salvation. This mission is realized through worship, education, witness, service, and the common life in Christ as expressed in the distinctive faith-experience of the Armenian people. All members of the Armenian Church—both clergy and lay—are called to participate fully in its mission.
