1st Annual Ann Arbor Russian Festival

Eat borsch, pirozhki, and delicious sweets at a Russian tea room. Watch a puppet show and Russian dancing complete with authentic costumes. Have your hair intricately braided. Thrill to music ranging from classical to exotic folk. Grown-ups can even check out the vodka infusion competition. St. Vladimir’s Russian Orthodox Church in Dexter will be offering the best of Russian culture in this two-day celebration.

“This is our first year, and we’re so excited!” says festival chair Yuliya Rodzianko. “We have a huge Russian community here, and we’d just like to share our unique culture.” Activities will run throughout the day with a special area for kids, and Yuliya highly recommends the Russian ice cream. “I can’t really explain the difference,” she says, “but there’s something about it that just tastes pretty amazing.”

Saturday, September 21, 11am-11pm, Sunday, September 22, 1-7 p.m. St. Vladimir Russian Orthodox Church, 9900 Jackson Road, Dexter. russianfestival.stvladimiraami.org/index.php
