California Armenian Home
6720 E Kings Canyon Rd. Fresno, CA 93727
Join Priests from the downtown Fresno Parish, as they conduct a ceremony to ask God to bless grapes and save the vineyards from natural disaster.
This annual event is a tradition that holds significant meaning to the Armenian culture. Grapes are considered to be "Queen of all fruits," and this belief has its origins dating back to pre-biblical times. It was a custom for people to present trays of first fruits as well as wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives, nuts and honey to their temple to be blessed.
After the blessing, there will be live music, dancing, and food.
