More Than 5,000 People Attended an Armenian Festival in Buenos Aires

The "Buenos Aires Celebrates Armenia" festival organized by the Armenian community drew more than 5,000 people in Belgrano, Buenos Aires, on Saturday November 29.

With booths where you could taste the typical dishes such as "shish kebab" or learn about the ancient history and culture, the residents of Buenos Aires shared a day of shows and performances of Armenian dances, as well as a presentation of the Symphony of the City of Buenos Aires.

Hugo Kuyumdjian, member of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation in Buenos Aires, said that "the art and culture displayed was the same that the Turkish state tried to eliminate one hundred years ago, along with the one and a half million Armenians massacred." That's why the organizers distributed pots with the Forget-Me-Not flower, the symbol of the Armenian Genocide Centenary.
