The Arab and Chaldean Festival takes place this weekend in downtown Detroit’s Hart Plaza.

The celebration of Arab and Chaldean culture and heritage runs from noon to midnight on both Saturday, July 28 and Sunday, July 29.

The festival is a showcase filled with special cultural exhibits, folklore and customs. In addition, there will be a Children’s Fair on Saturday from 3-8 p.m. There also will be a fashion show on Sunday at 8 p.m.

This year marks the 41st edition of the event, the largest celebration of Arab and Chaldean culture in North America.

The festival features a variety of Arab and Chaldean food, an ethnic cultural gallery, and an impressive entertainment program includes live music, dance, and lots for the whole family to do and enjoy.

The Arab World festival was established as a non – profit community organization in 1972 and is now known as Arab & Chaldean Festival. It is the largest Arab-Chaldean-American cultural event in North America. Last year, more than 50,000 people attend the festival.
