The event offers two days of authentic Middle Eastern food along with church tours and an information film about the Coptic Orthodox faith; gifts and books will be for sale and fun and there'll be games for the kids. Attendees can even enjoy a photo opportunity with a pharaoh and queen of Egypt.

The fifth annual church festival runs from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at St. Demiana, 9200 White Lane. Admission is free, but bring money for food and more.
