2010 Yalla Lebanese Festival


On Sunday December 5, Rundle Park will come to life with the sights, the smells and the sounds of the annual Yalla Lebanese Festival.

Yalla means “c’mon, let’s go!” in Arabic, but this summer, Yalla will mean a day featuring lots of eating and dancing Lebanese style.

The Yalla Festival is based on the four principles of food, music, dance and culture, showcasing the very best that the South Australian Lebanese community has to offer in a true fest for the senses.

Yalla will feature all-day entertainment including singers, musicians, DJs, belly dancers and traditional folk ‘dabke’ dancers. And there’ll be opportunities for patrons to learn from the professionals and participate in the action on our giant dance floor!

Lebanese food is well known for its exotic flavour and colour. From delicious falafel to traditional favourites like tabouli and hummus, from Lebanese-style yiros called ‘shuwarma’ to mouth-watering sweets like baklava, the Yalla Festival will have your taste buds exploding with full intensity.

Yalla is a free-entry family friendly event so there’ll be plenty of entertainment for the kids, including camel rides, face-painters, and bouncy castle.

Where: Rundle Park, Adelaide City

When: Sunday Dec 5th, 11am-7pm
