The city of Richmond has a huge Lebanese population. The Lebanese Food Festival is celebrated by the community every May at St. Anthony’s Maronite Catholic Church. The event has been held in Richmond for over three decades and everyone is welcome to pay a visit. Entry is free and the food is extremely affordable. The event started back in 1984 to showcase Lebanese culture and heritage. It has quickly grown into one of the largest festivals in the city. Visitors get to eat stuffed grape leaves, cheese pies, and spinach. Make sure to try the Beirut beer as it is simply delicious and there are plenty of Middle Eastern crepes to satisfy your appetite.
