And here it is! The tastiest and most waited festival of all Armenians and everybody else who loves meat.
Barbecue professionals from different corners of Armenia and from other countries will tease you with barbecues you will not have the nerve to resist.
This year the festival will take place on September 12 in gorgeous Akhtala, Lori. Everything will begin at 13:00 o’clock. Besides the distinctive scent of the barbecue itself you will also be surrounded by the spiritual presence of a 1000 year old church St. Mariam.
Akhtala is 180 km north of the capital Yerevan. The drive will take about 3 hours. Once you are there and you feel that you don’t really want to go anywhere else, you can stay in Gayane, Debed, Haghpat Bridge or any other hotel located in surrounding villages to relax a bit more.
