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!)

Public Notes

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.

Lakeside Buddha Sangha is an Evanston-based meditation group which meets weekly to study and practice the Engaged Buddhism taught by Vietnamese Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh.
Weekly Meditation: Sunday evenings at First Congregational Church.
Doors open at 6:50 p.m.
Mediation begins, and doors are closed, at 7:15 p.m.  Participants are encouraged to arrive on time because of a building alarm system that goes into effect once the doors are shut.

Public Notes

Lakeside grew out of a four-day Chicago area retreat led by Thich Nhat Hanh in May 1991. Lakeside has been meeting ever since, offering sitting and walking meditation, Dharma Discussions, Days of Mindfulness and retreats in the tradition of Thich Nhat Hanh.Participants come from all walks of life and diverse religious background. Lakeside members need not consider themselves Buddhist. Lakeside’s common denominator is an interest in mindfulness practices as taught by Thich Nhat Hanh, who encourages us to take up a life of awareness and healing, and to practice love and understanding in our communities.
