  • Shashlyk: Russian style shish kabob marinated for 24 hours and cooked on a Russian style grill called a “mangal”
  • Pel’meni: Boiled Russian style dumplings (pierogis) filled with savory meat
  • Pirozhki: Fried Russian dumplings (pierogis) filled with meat and other fillings
  • Numerous Russian style salads

  • and much more

Last year, the food was so popular that we sold out within 2.5 hours so be sure to arrive early this year so you won’t miss out!

The recently beautified church will also be open for church tours with the first tour beginning at noon.

We plan to have lots to do for everyone including the kids!  Numerous vendors are also expected to be present including the monks of the Hermitage of the Holy Cross and Damascene Gallery icons.
