What do Ian Hunter, The Presidents of the United States of America, and Drew Carey have in common? They all said: “Cleveland ROCKS!” and we agree! Like the triumphant homecoming of LeBron James, this July marks the highly-anticipated return of the Midwest Federation of American Syrian Lebanese Clubs, Inc. (MFASLC) Annual Convention to Cleveland!

We’ll be Rockin’ Our Roots in the city that is home to the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, the world champion Cleveland Cavaliers, and the World Series-contending Cleveland Indians. You can pleasure your palate at dozens of restaurants, including several run by James Beard award-winning chefs, like The Iron Chef himself, Michael Symon, all within walking distance of the beautiful Renaissance Cleveland Hotel (downtown). You can listen to the world-renowned Cleveland Orchestra, take in the beautiful exhibits at the Cleveland Museum of Art, see a Broadway musical at The Palace Theatre in the theatre district (a short walk from the hotel), listen to original jazz music at Take 5, The Velvet Tango Room, or Society, and enjoy the downtown nightlife from the many bars, clubs, and lounges on the East Bank of the Flats, or right on Lake Erie itself! There is so much to do in Cleveland, so come rock your heritage with us in this destination city!

Grab your family, invite your friends, and plan your summer vacation or big, fat family reunion around this exciting and culture-packed event!

The agenda includes a beautiful evening dinner cruise on Lake Erie, Lebanese food, a trip to the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame and the innovative Great Lakes Science Center, banquets, hafli’s, dancing and dabke, Lebanese food, the MFASLC Annual 5K for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital — our 10th anniversary year! — a picnic in the park and a sports tournament, liturgy services, Lebanese food, award banquets, and a farewell breakfast before we all have to depart. Did we mention tons of Lebanese food?
