Simply Slavic festival set for this weekend

June 19, 2014
The Town Crier

The Simply Slavic downtown festival created specifically to celebrate Greater Youngstown's colorful Slavic community will take place from noon to midnight June 21 on Federal Plaza East.

Keeping with its mission, the event will showcase the rich traditions of the Mahoning Valley's Slavic culture by celebrating food, music, dance and customs of various Slavic ethnicities represented in the area.

It will feature live music and folk dance performances, a parade of flags, a Slavic kitchen and marketplace, an ethnic heritage tent, and a baking contest.

The Youngstown Public Library will be on site from noon to 3 p.m. with information of particular interest to the audience: local history, genealogy and language.
