8/23-8/25 - Egyptian Festival in Seven Hills
St. Mark's Annual Egyptian Festival prides itself in being one of the few outdoor festivals in the area. The majority of the menu is cooked and assembled outdoors. Festival guests enjoy their delicious Egyptian foods sitting under shade of the outdoor tents, listening to Egyptian music, drinking tasty fresh fruit smoothies, and watching children play at the inflatable play stations.
The indoor section of the festival is where unique souvenirs, traditional desserts, and freshly brewed coffee and tea are available. The bookstore offers a great collection of books, gifts and Coptic icons. The small Egyptian grocery sells fresh pitas, spices, and more. With games, food, fun, and friends, the Egyptian Festival has become one of the major blessings of our church and community, as it offers something special for each person.
