11th Annual Turkish Festival to Take Place Saturday, November 17 at Pompano Beach
The Florida Turkish American Association (FTAA) is pleased to present a day of Turkish music, dance, art and culture at the 11th Annual Turkish Festival on Saturday, November 17, 2012 from 10:00am to 9:00pm at the Pompano Beach Civic Center. The festival is free of charge and open to the general public.
The purpose of the Festival is to promote Turkey, its rich and diverse culture. It is the FTAA’s goal that festival goers will get the opportunity to celebrate, learn about and savor Turkish hospitality, culture and cuisine.
The festival’s highlights will include performances by Turkish Folk Dance Group performing Turkey’s famous traditional and distinctive dances, Band, Music and Belly Dancing. The festival will offer delicious Turkish fare available for purchase, such as doner kebap (spinning roast), grilled kofte (ground meat with spices), borek (cheese and spinach filled pastry), baklava and Turkish coffee, to name a few of the delicacies. There will even be traditional fortune tellers reading fortunes from coffee grinds in the special coffee tent. We will host demonstrations of Turkish arts such as paper marbling (Ebru), with festival goers having the opportunity to purchase these art forms. Free children’s activities include face painting and balloon sculpting, making the festival a family affair.
