Designate Anaheim’s Little Arabia

A campaign led by the Arab American Civic Council to officially designate Little Arabia District in the City of Anaheim.

Little Arabia District is a cultural destination in Anaheim, California, the center for Orange County’s Arab-American community.

Every week, thousands of visitors shop, dine, worship, and celebrate within the vibrant ethnic community of Little Arabia, located in the area of Brookhurst Street between Interstate 5 and Katella Avenue in the city of Anaheim. The Arab-American community has contributed to the economy and culture of Anaheim by opening restaurants, mosques, churches, clothing stores, hair salons, and other destinations for those wishing to experience Middle Eastern culture.

Officially designating Little Arabia would bring even more commerce into the city.
