Harissa Festival

Every year, in the second part of September, all interested people, true Musalerians and others are gathering around this place to celebrate the anniversary of the victory. This celebration is followed by national Armenian dances starting from Saturday evening and finishing on Sunday afternoon. Besides it, there is a very unique tradition. All these celebrations will not be typical Musaler ones, without the traditional dish making….there are certain cooks, who are invited to the celebration to cook “HARISSA” – a kind of homogeneous porridge made of previously stewed and boned chicken or lamb and coarsely ground soaked wheat.
