St. Mary’s Food Festival


 Dear Merchant, Professional, Parish or Festival Supporter:

 On Saturday and Sunday September 16 and 17, 2017 St. Mary Armenian Church will host its Annual Festival. This activity has been a much anticipated fall event by the Livingston and surrounding communities for well over 25 years. This year, the event will be enhanced by the recently constructed, magnificent St. Mary Toufayan Hall.

 Our festival highlights the internationally diverse make up of our church by providing the community with a tasty sample of ethnic dishes and culture from Armenia, Jerusalem, Lebanon, Egypt, and other near eastern countries. In addition, festival vendors sell art, crafts and other goods from many places around the world. Many who attend the festival have done so for 5 – 10 years and consider the festival as a start to their holiday activities.

 The festival has many purposes. However, its chief goal is to raise funds for various ministries of St. Mary. One ministry which directly impacts the quality of life in the Livingston, New Jersey community is the St. Mary Valentine’s Day and Thanksgiving Day food baskets distributed to the needy members of our community.

 We share this information and hope that you will make a donation  to our festival and become a festival sponsor. In return for your donation, we will place your flyers promoting  your services (8×11 trifold) near the cash registers along with a 11×17 sign with the name of your establishment and/or organization. You will receive a letter from the church recognizing your gift so it can be claimed as a tax deduction.

 Additionally, all donors and sponsors will receive recognition at the festival through  our

printed quarterly bulletin-Gantegh, as well as our  church website at

 We thank you in advance for your support of our church and its important community ministry.
