Egyptian Bazaar

Cleopatra won't be there, but don't let that keep you from this weekend's Egyptian Bazaar at St. Mary's Coptic Orthodox Church in Savage. You can learn all about ancient and modern Egyptian life and culture; taste authentic Egyptian foods, including shish tawook (chicken kebab) and konafa (pastry); hear traditional music; and shop for Egyptian crafts, groceries and other products. Documentary films will be shown, including "The Sacred Family Flight to Egypt" and "Modern and Ancient Egypt." Tours of the Egyptian church will be offered. And kids can play games, have their faces painted and hair braided.

The Egyptian Bazaar runs 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday and 12:30 p.m.-5 p.m. Sunday at St. Mary's Coptic Orthodox Church, 8340 Woodward St., Savage. Free. Call 410-880-0903.
