On Saturday, June 30, Halal Fest will bring together chefs and vendors who specialize in Indian, Pakistani, Middle Eastern, Arab, Mediterranean, African and American cuisines — all selling dishes made according to Islamic dietary guidelines.
As event founder Irfan Rydhan notes, many of these dishes — think lamb gyros, hummus — have become commonplace on the US culinary landscape. And many festival attendees now come from outside the American Muslim community.
Reflecting the array of cuisines, more than 20 vendors from around the Bay Area will sell everything from brisket to chaat to gyros to tacos.
Between bites, one can check out the live entertainment, carnival rides and the global arts and jewelry bazaar.
It will be held at 12 to 10:30 p.m., at Town Fair Plaza, 39100 State St., Fremont.
