25th Annual Houston Turkish Festival

Saturday, November 5, 2016 - Sunday, November 6, 2016

$6

The 25th Houston Turkish Festival will celebrate all things Turkish, including authentic Turkish food, coffee, music, traditional folklore dancing including the famous whirling dervishes, a kids’ corner filled with fun activities, arts & crafts, cultural exhibitions as well as a very colorful Grand Bazaar. The theme for the 2016 Houston Turkish Festival is “Turkishfest Lends a Hand”. The festival will host a number of local charitable organizations, promote their mission and promote the visitors to donate either money and/or non-perishable goods. This year the festival will also feature a mini world pavilion which will provide an overview to the mosaic of international cultures Houston prides itself with. The Festival will feature award winning performances by TUANA ANKARA Folk Dance Group from Turkey as well as a collage of other music and dance shows including an “Opera Under the Stars” featuring Mete Tasin & Ilgin Aka and a special appearance by renowned Turkish composer Erberk Eryilmaz performing some of his work with the Apollo Chamber Orchestra. Each day, the festival will close with what has now become a tradition, a Turkish disco dance hour.
