Modern Enkutatash is a holiday of exchanging New Years greetings and gifts, families and friends gathering for a traditional meal of injera (flat bread) and wat (stew).

Join and celebrate this special holiday on Saturday, September 22nd. Experience a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony, music, dance, and more.
