Russian Food Festival

Friday, May 15-Saturday, May 16


Beef stroganoff, piroshki, stuffed peppers, chebureki, mushroom zakuson, medovik honey cake—all of these can be yours at the annual Russian Food Festival at the St. Seraphim of Sarov Orthodox Church. After gorging on such delectables, food fest attendees can enjoy live Russian music, church tours, Russian gift items and meet local iconographer Deacon Matthew Garrett. At 14 years old, his father sent him to the St. John of Damascus Icon Studio at the Antiochian Village in Bolivar, Penn. At the festival, Garrett will display his work and talk about the process of painting an icon. That and a mouthful of oreshki? You can bet people will be rushin' to get a taste of Russia.
