Ask any Armenian—herbs are essential to any meal.

The HayBuis Festival, translated as “Armenian Herb,” celebrates these special ingredients and the traditional knowledge used to forage and prepare them.

The Festival is held in one of the most picturesque places of Armenia - the Apaga resort located in Yenokavan, Tavush region, an area known for its beautiful forests and mountains.

Visitors learn about Armenian herbs and different methods of using them, including their healing properties. There is also a herbal tea party, educational games to learn about forest biodiversity, master cooking classes and other activities for children. And, if you are curious about what a 20-meter long lavash brduch (wrap) looks and tastes like, you can see and try it only at The HayBuis Festival.

Pan-Armenian Khorovats (Barbecue) Festival

22.08 > 22.08

You can smell The Pan-Armenian Khorovats (Barbecue) Festival long before you arrive. With flavorful meat and vegetables slow-roasting over hot coals, you’ll never think of barbecue the same way again. The Festival is located in Akhtala of the Lori region - which boasts the title of “the Khorovats capital city.” Cooks representing different restaurants, bars, and various organizations participate in the festival, serving up khorovats and competing against each other.

Visitors can taste pork, beef, mutton, fish and vegetable barbecues followed by the award ceremony for best flavor, best look, and best concept. It is said that one of the best ways to get to know a culture is through its people and national cuisine. The Pan-Armenian Khorovats festival offers both.
