The Taste of the Middle East non-profit was established in 2019 and fosters unity, celebration, and community among Denver’s Middle Eastern cultures. Their annual festival took place this year on September 9th at the Aurora Municipal Center in Colorado. It featured a Souq, or market, with vendors showcasing imported treasures, a palette of flavors from the many different types of cuisines found in the Middle East, and a line-up of entertainment from Musicians, DJs, and dance performances.
Esam Al-Waeliy is an organizer of The Taste of the Middle East Festival. He joined The Morning Set earlier in September to share more details on this community event.
