After 40 years, Armenians will be making their second appearance in mass in Asbury!
 
For Armenians on the East Coast in the 1950s and 60s, Asbury Park, New Jersey was THE place to come together on summer weekends. Days were spent on the beach and in the water, and at night everyone would gather at places called the Hye Hotel, the Van Hotel, the Sunset Lounge and the Hye-Da-Way kef room...crowds lining the sidewalks, late night hook-ups, and the sounds of oud and doumbeg filling the air.

With Return to Asbury, we're bringing back this summer tradition — in perfect symmetry with the historic beach town of Asbury Park, which is currently in the midst of its own exciting rebirth!
