Salaam and Marhaban!

April 8th, 2017  from 11:00 AM to 6:00 PM


HaflaThe Shire of Quintavia once again open our doors for our annual Hafla in a new location! Imagine yourself in a far away, exotic land; potent and exciting, mysterious and haunting, your sense of awe and mystery enhanced by the beat of tribal drums. We invite you to bring your Persian rugs, pillows, dancing shoes, musical instruments, a warm smile, and join us for a day and evening in the Middle East.


Through the veiled mystery of time emerges the exotic world of belly dance. Come, dance with us, sing, tell stories, rest, recline, eat, talk with old friends, make new ones, and just enjoy yourself. The exquisiteness of dance performances by local belly dance troupes and students will captivate you. Informal dance classes will be held in the main hall in rotation with performances and drumming circles.
We may also have a few merchants to tempt you with their wondrous goods.
Once again the Cafe of Middle Eastern foods will be served throughout the day at tables in the back of the hall by our lovely wait staff.



The site is accessible per the East Kingdom Porter’s checklist. If you have any questions please contact the Autocrat.
