38th Annual Lebanese Festival Hosted by St. Sharbel Maronite Church

Come and experience the excitement of the 38th Annual Lebanese Festival, taking place at St. Sharbel Maronite Catholic Church on June 7th (5-10:00 p.m.), June 8th (12-11:00 p.m.), and June 9th (12-10:00 p.m.), 2024. Located at 526 Easton Avenue, on the corner of Franklin Boulevard in Somerset, New Jersey, the festival promises a vibrant celebration of Lebanese culture and hospitality.

Traditionally know as a “Mahrajan”, our festival invites families, friends, and members of the community to come together for an unforgettable outdoor experience filled with authentic Lebanese cuisine, music, dance, and traditions. Indulge in a variety of traditional Lebanese dishes such as falafel, shawarma, hummus, spinach pies, tabouleh, stuffed grape leaves, and more, with plenty of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options available. Sweeten your experience with an array of Lebanese pastries including baklawa, ma’moul, namoura, and ghraybeh, accompanied by a wide selection of beverages from our full-service bar, featuring beer, spirits, and non-alcoholic drinks. For an added dose of thrill, we offer a range of freshly prepared hookahs available for rent, providing attendees with a delightful and immersive experience at the festival.

Entertainment will abound with live music performances by different artists each day. Maurice Chedid will take the stage on Friday, followed by Jad Rahme on Saturday, and Chadi Naddaf on Sunday, presenting a mix of traditional and popular songs from Lebanon and the Middle East. Experience captivating dance performances by the talented youth of our parish, ranging from children to young adults. Plus, don’t miss out on the chance to participate in games, crafts, the exciting Super 50/50 raffle, and a Magician on Saturday from 2-4:00pm.

The Lebanese Festival is a testament to the dedication of St. Sharbel Maronite Catholic Church parishioners and friends, celebrating the rich heritage and resilience of Lebanese culture. As one of the community's most anticipated events, drawing attendees from across New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and the Tri-State region, the festival serves as a key fundraiser for our eagerly awaited new church complex.

Admission and parking are free for all, and we welcome everyone to join us! For further information, please contact the parish office of St. Sharbel Church at (732) 828-2055 or visit our social media platforms on Facebook, Instagram, or our website at
