The Arab American Cultural Center of Oregon promotes the richness and beauty of Arab culture via community events, festivals and family entertainment throughout the calendar year. AACCO sponsors its own events, and also lends support when possible to existing Arab culture activities held in the Portland Metro Area and the Pacific Northwest region.

Arab Festival 2020 Cancelled

We are sad to announce that, because of the pandemic, this year’s Arab Festival has been cancelled.  We are devastated but want nothing more than the safety and health of our community, and so we know that this is the right decision.  The AACCO Board of Directors continues to brainstorm creative ideas for a “virtual” festival replacement or other activities we might be able to safely host.  We welcome your thoughts and ideas—if you have any, please reach out.
