In the spirit of Khalil Gibran, we here at the American Lebanese Cultural Center (ALCC) in Houston, Texas want to take this opportunity to welcome you to our website. We ask that you take a couple of minutes to find out what the ALCC is all about – and that is celebrating the rich, diverse, and unmatched history and tradition that makes Lebanon truly one of the most unique countries in the world. Our organization has no religious leanings as we are also non-political, non-partisan, and we have no affiliation other than a deep and genuine love for our dear country Lebanon. The ALCC was founded in February 2014 and since then we have obtained local, national, and international recognition for our one of a kind programs and events throughout the year as we work together to showcase the Lebanese culture and heritage. We are based in Houston and strive to convey our message globally.
