Business Description

The Anatolian Cultures and Food Festival is a beloved cultural and historical event that has been gaining popularity year after year. This four-day festival attracts over 45,000 people from all over the world and is held in Costa Mesa, California.

Visitors are greeted by a "Civilizations Path" that consists of 14 gates, each representing different civilizations throughout history such as The Hittite Empire, The Kingdom of Commagene, Lydia, The Persian Empire, and The Ottoman Empire. Actors wearing authentic costumes at each gate welcome and greet all visitors.

The festival also features three-dimensional giant-sized replicas of various cities in Anatolia, including Istanbul, Konya, Antalya, Mardin, Van, Gaziantep, Isparta, Burdur, and Kilis. Traditional handicrafts like hand-woven carpets, water marbling, calligraphy, and stone-working are displayed and demonstrated by artisans who travel all the way from Turkey.

But the highlight of the festival is undoubtedly the food. Visitors are treated to a wide variety of traditional Anatolian dishes like kebabs, baklava, borek, and pide. The festival also features live music, dance performances, and art exhibitions showcasing Anatolian culture.

Founded by the Pacifica Institute, a non-profit organization by a group of Turkish-Americans, the festival is a celebration of the rich cultural heritage of Anatolia. With its vibrant and colorful atmosphere, the Anatolian Cultures and Food Festival is definitely an event not to be missed.
