ATASC’s 1st Annual California Turkish Festival

ATASC would like to invite our community, friends, and families to the first annual Turkish Cultural festival. This year, the traditional picnic organized every year for the Commemoration of Ataturk, Youth and Sports Day on May 19 has evolved into an annual festival that we hope will be the first of many in the following years. 
Date: Sunday, May 22, 2022Time: 11 am-6 pm Location: Shoreline Aquatic Park, 200 Aquarium Way, Long Beach.
Parking: Pike Parking structure
Please mark your calendars and bring your friends, coworkers, neighbors, and the entire family to enjoy delicious Turkish food, tea & coffee, all-day music, performances, and many more. There will be workshops and vendors for shopping experiences. You can use cash, credit card, or online payment methods at our event. 
We are sponsoring Turkish Coffee Lady, screening the Turkish Coffee Tales of Anatolia documentary, and proudly hosting world-renowned micro artist master Hasan Kale. 
Let’s come together as a community to celebrate and promote the Turkish culture.
