TURKISH FESTIVAL-SEPTEMBER 12

We are proud to announce our 6th Annual Turkish Festival, which will take place at Raindrop Foundation in Oklahoma City on Saturday September 12, 2015. This event is a great opportunity to provide our community with an insight to the Turkish Culture through cultural entertainment and educational information. Last year, the festival hosted 2,500 people and this year our committee is expecting to surpass that number.

The festival will feature Turkish folk dances such as whirling dervishes, arts, crafts and the unforgettably delicious Turkish cuisine. The beautiful Turkish art featured will include water marbling art also known around the world as Ebru. This year, we will showcase the art of handmade ceramic tile created by artists from Kutahya, Turkey.
Many gift items as well as original arts and crafts will be for sale to the public.

The Raindrop Foundation would like to invite you, your family and friends to this year's Turkish Festival to experience an event with such rich entertainment and activities. We believe that in order to contribute to the mutually enriching relationship among Turkish Americans and their friends, between the people of the United States of America and the Republic of Turkey, Raindrop Foundation will continue to organize and support cultural activities such as this Turkish Festival.
