Event description

Description

What do Ian Hunter, The Presidents of the United States of America, and Drew Carey have in common? They all said: "Cleveland ROCKS!" and we agree! Like the triumphant homecoming of LeBron James, this July marks the highly-anticipated return of the Midwest Federation of American Syrian Lebanese Clubs, Inc. (MFASLC) Annual Convention to Cleveland!

We'll be Rockin' Our Roots in the city that is home to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the world champion Cleveland Cavaliers, and the World Series-contending Cleveland Indians. You can pleasure your palate at dozens of restaurants, including several run by James Beard award-winning chefs, like Iron Chef Michael Symon, all within walking distance of the beautiful Renaissance Cleveland Hotel (downtown). You can listen to the world-renowned Cleveland Orchestra, take in the beautiful exhibits at the Cleveland Museum of Art, see a Broadway musical at The Palace Theatre in the historic - and newly rennovated - Playhouse Square theatre district (a short walk from the hotel), listen to original jazz music at Take 5, The Velvet Tango Room, or Society, and enjoy the downtown nightlife from the many bars, clubs, and lounges on the East Bank of the Flats, or right on Lake Erie itself! There is so much to do in Cleveland, so come rock your heritage with us in this destination city!

And just west of Cleveland by 1 hour is the single, greatest rollercoaster park on the planet, Cedar Point! Consider making a trip there as part of your vacation! There are plenty of hotels and they are very affordable!

Grab your family, invite your friends, and plan your summer vacation or big, fat family reunion around this exciting and culture-packed event!

**Please note: Those looking to attend the Friday or Saturday night dinners MUST purchase a full ticket book or the a la carte "Banquet and Hafli" tickets in advance. They will NOT be available for sale at the door.**
