The Arab American Cultural Center of Oregon promotes the richness and beauty of Arab culture via community events, festivals and family entertainment throughout the calendar year. AACCO sponsors its own events, and also lends support when possible to existing Arab culture activities held in the Portland Metro Area and the Pacific Northwest region.

April is Arab Heritage Month!

In Oregon and across the country, APRIL is Arab American Heritage Month!  It's our chance to recognize our community's rich heritage, culture, and contributions.  Here at AACCO, we aim to celebrate and elevate the arts, culture, cuisine, and heritage of our Arab American community members. We encourage you to do the same! 

Check our our schedule for Arab American Heritage Month below--over the coming weeks, we'll have cooking classes, Arabic storytelling, our community food distribution, and our INAUGURAL Arab American Heritage Month Gala to wrap up our month of celebration.  Please join us!  To sign up for any of these events, keep your eye out right here online.  You can purchase tickets on Eventbrite For questions, email us anytime at This email address is being protected from spambots.
