HISTORY of CEDAR Productions-

MANAGER = Walid Assaf

We are a not for profit organization formed in 1999 when the US Marine Corps called and asked us to take over their booking of acts for their International Festivals. For the next few years we just did more and more of this on an annual basis. By 9/11 we realized we had a full contingent of acts to pick from but it was time to move on.
 CEDAR Productions was formed but with the idea of offering our aid for culturally based act to hopefully educate the general public on the beauty and generosity of the Middle Eastern peoples as a whole. Not as the media usually shows these people. These are a people who are proud, love their county, music, dance and have so much to offer the world.

We have booked weddings in NYC from England and around the USA. We sponsor entertainers from around the USA and annually from Canada, Egypt, Lebanon and Mexico City. for all kinds of functions be they corporate, libraries, dinners and hafli's  etc. We have no shortage of talent. Our newest ideas after just returning from Lebanon are not to be outdone by any in the area. Have a true Zeffa for your wedding. We present Lebanese, Egyptian and Iraqi  zeffets for the finest wedding celebration.
