In celebration of Jordan's Independence Day and the upcoming holy month of Ramadan, JAADC is hosting it’s annual spring BBQ on Saturday May 20th at 2pm.  This is a good time to enjoy being outdoors, meet and connect with other Jordanians in the area, eat delicious food, and play some games. Our venue has something for everyone: A reserved picnic shelter, a playground for the kids, and a few sports fields for the adults to enjoy. Food will include an assortment of grilled meats, dessert or fruits, soft drinks, and water. Feel free to bring your arguileh.

Ticket Price:

    • Paying JAADC Members: FREE
