Spartanburg Food Festival

For the past two years Istanbul Cultural Center has participated in Spartanburg's International Festival. We served many wonderful Turkish Food from our Food Booth and taught many people about Turkey that came by the Cultural Booths. Seeing all the different cultures coming together at this event is a really wonderful experience. The Spartanburg International Festival is one festival that you don't ever want to miss.

Spartanburg Food Festival

Saturday May 22nd The Atlantic Institute and its partner The Istanbul Center hosted a Turkish Food Feast here at our Columbia branch. Patrons were given the opportunity to enjoy an authentic, home cooked Turkish meal made by members of the Institute and their families. The event also featured a “learn Turkish” booth in which guests could go to, to learn some simple words and phrases in Turkish from Turkish volunteers as a part of the Istanbul Center. Over a hundred people came out to enjoy the food and each other’s company. It was a successful, fun event that lent itself toward cross-cultural conversation, which is ultimately the goal of any event hosted by these two organizations. Thank you to all those who came and feasted and a special thank you to our volunteers who cooked all of the incredible food! We appreciate each and every one of you who played a part in this events success and hope to host more events of this kind in the future.
