GLENDALE–The Armenian Youth Federation will celebrate Armenia’s May 28 Independence Day with a large-scale picnic-festival on Monday–May 30.
Well-known singers and performers–including Nersik Ispirian–Joseph Krikorian–Paul Baghdadlian–Armenchik–Ara Shahbazian–Vatche Hagopian–Sako–and Antoine Bezjian–will entertain the crowd. Singers will be accompanied by the Knar Band.
"May 28–1918 represents one of the most significant turning points in our history," said Shant Baboujian–chairman of the AYF Western Region. "As a free public event in celebration of such a great turning point in our history–we view the picnic-festival as a service to the Armenian community."
The picnic-festival–to take place at Glendale High School starting at 11am–will offer food–music–and games. Local businesses and organizations will also have booths through which they will make their products and information available to the public.
