SAN JOSE, CA (June 5, 2014) - The ESFNA Soccer Tournament and Festival would not be the same without the many vendors and businesses that participate each year. “The ESFNA soccer tournament is good business and something I try not to miss every summer,” said Gihon Culture Hall (Atlanta) owner Tesfaye Legos during the Maryland 2013 event. Vendors from all around the United States and Ethiopia flock to the tournament every summer to participate in the biggest Ethiopian event of the year. With the love of Ethiopia in their hearts, vendors not only find the tournament financially rewarding, but an enjoyable experience as well.
ESFNA invites you to attend our annual Soccer Tournament and Festival to display or demonstrate your products and/or services!
Each summer, over 100 local businesses and cultural organizations participate in our annual event and serve an audience of over 30,000 attendees. We make space available to restaurants, retailers, and non-profits that wish to show and/or demonstrate their products.
If you wish to participate, please complete the registration form by clicking the link above. You may prepay for your booth along with your submission.
Prepaying allows you to receive priority booth placement on the stadium grounds.
If you are paying offline, please make checks payable to ESFNA and send your payment to 2603 Apple Way, Dunkirk, MD 20754. We accept money orders and cashiers checks via postal mail.

The Ethiopian Sports Federation in North America (ESFNA) is finalizing its preparation to celebrate its 31st Annual Soccer Tournament in San Jose, California from June 29 to July 5, 2014.
In addition to the soccer tournament, multiple cultural and societal events are planned during the seven day Ethiopian extravaganza.
It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that ESFNA announces its participation and partnership with the Ethiopian-American Council in the 10th Annual Ethiopian Heritage Flag Raising Ceremony over the City Hall of San Jose, California. The flag raising ceremony will be attended by San Jose City officials, ESFNA’s invited guests of honor, celebrities and members of the community. As ESFNA has done back in 2010, the Federation’s Executive Committee, Board of Directors and players will be represented at the occasion.
Every year, the City of San Jose holds the Ethiopian Heritage Flag Raising Day in appreciation and celebration of Ethiopia’s and Ethiopians’ contribution to its city and across the world. Since 2005, with the exception of 2010, the flag raising event took place around the Ethiopian New Year in September. This year, EAC along with residents of San Jose has lobbied the City to move the event to July 3, 2014 in order to coincide this important event with ESFNA’s 31st Cultural and Soccer Tournament. ESFNA is thankful and appreciative of this acknowledgement.
