Armenian Memorial Church hosting an annual fair
WATERTOWN, Mass.—After a two-year hiatus, the Armenian Memorial Church will hold its annual fair on Friday May 20 and Saturday May 21 (rain or shine). On Friday evening, the church will serve its delicious kebab dinners and sell exquisite desserts from 5 to 8 p.m. The entire show will be open on Saturday May 21 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Visitors will have two days to savor dinners of Armenian beef, chicken and losh (minced meat) kebab with rice pilaf, salad and pita bread. The selection will also include Armenian meatless meals. Visitors can eat at tables under the tent or buy take-out orders if they prefer.
There will be a table full of Armenian delicacies and gastronomic specialties.
The parishioners are known for their fine cuisine and have been busy preparing a variety of Armenian favourites: paklava, kadayif, choreg, kufte, eetch, boreg cheese and other baked goods.
The whole congregation participates in this fundraiser, which is the most important of the year.
The church dedicates ten percent of its profits to charity. This year’s funds will be donated to Miaseen, a non-profit organization that supports family and community stability in Armenia.
The Armenian Memorial Church is located at 32 Bigelow Avenue in Watertown, just off Coolidge Square.
The fair is open to the public. The church is wheelchair accessible.
