House of Palestine Lawn Program

International Cottages, Balboa Park, San Diego

Festivals, Fairs and Celebrations

The members of the House of Palestine are hosting their annual lawn program.

The entertainment is provided by folk dancers, a band of Arabic drum and oud, and sometimes they have a fashion show of costumes and dresses.

Tables are set up to display artifacts and books, as well as traditional dresses and clothes to be viewed by the visitors to the park. A coffee “jelseh” (seating) is setup on the grass in the lawn area, featuring a woven carpet topped with large embroidered pillows, and serving coffee from a gold coffee pot in tiny cups for a visual taste of Palestinian hospitality. Visitors can also have their name written onto a card in the artistic lettering of the Arabic language.
