House of Palestine Lawn Program
Date(s) - 03/19/2023
11:00 am - 6:00 pm
House of Pacific Relations International Cottages
From January through early December of 2023, member houses of the House of Pacific Relations feature music, dance, traditional costumes, arts, crafts, and ethnic foods.
The entertainment is provided by folk dancers, a band of Arabic drum and oud, and sometimes they have a fashion show of costumes and dresses. Tables are set up to display artifacts and books, as well as traditional dresses and clothes to be viewed by the visitors to the park. A coffee “jelseh” (seating) is setup on the grass in the lawn area, featuring a woven carpet topped with large embroidered pillows, and serving coffee from a gold coffee pot in tiny cups for a visual taste of Palestinian hospitality. Visitors can also have their name written onto a card in the artistic lettering of the Arabic language.
