September 15, 2019 (El Cajon) -- The Chaldean community invites you, your family and friends to the 8th annual Chaldean-American festival September 28-29 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Hillsdale Middle School, located at 1309 Brabham St, El Cajon.

This event, sponsored by Mercedes Benz of El Cajon, features a fun weekend of cultural foods, music, dancing, carnival games,  rides,  inflatables, craft and business booths, raffles and other entertainment. There is a $5 admission charge.
 
Chaldean Catholics originated in Mesopotamia. Chaldean immigrants left war and persecution in the Middle East, primarily Iraq, to seek a better life in America. Chaldean-Americans in El Cajon have helped to revitalize the community, opening many new businesses and supporting charitable causes.
