Remodel is Completed!


Come and see what the proceeds from the Russian Food Festival have made possible!  We completed our long anticipated remodeling project at the end of 2019 and truly appreciate all the help from the community in turning our dream into a reality.

Entertainment
 
We are so excited to welcome Juliana Svetlitchnaia and Artyom Muravsky to the Russian Food Festival this year!  They will be performing traditional Russian music throughout the day on Friday and Saturday.
 
Juliana is part of EthnoRussia, an organization dedicated to preserving traditional Russian songs.  From ethnorussia.com “Some of the songs… are more than a thousand years old. For centuries they were passed from generation to generation only by the oral tradition, sometimes evolving, sometimes staying close to what they sounded like in those ancient days. Even today there are Russian villages where this tradition still exists, but it is quickly fading. As the time goes by, the old masters pass away, and the young villagers tend to choose the modern culture."

 

Local Iconographer


Come and meet local iconographer Matthew Garrett.  He will be displaying some of his work and talking about the process of painting an icon.  His biography and a complete catalog of his work are available on his web site.
