This year, the Slavic Festival is encouraging people of all ages to participate in the “Cabbage Roll” Dance Contest, sponsored by Strawberry Hill Poviticia. We're invite people to submit a video of their version of the “Cabbage Roll” dance, which has been choreographed for the Festival. Watch the video, then record your own today!
Everybody Get Your Roll On
Grammy nominee Alex Meixner will be returning to headline the 2013 Slavic Festival. He plans to bring with him his high-energy mix of traditional polkas and good time music. Alongside this polka master, festival visitors will be able to experience traditional music and dance with the Sugar Creek Kolo Kids, Ethnic Dance Troupe and Tamburitzans, village musicians and more!
The 2013 Sugar Creek Slavic Festival will take place June 7 and 8 on the Mike Onka Memorial Building Grounds, 11520 East Putnam in Sugar Creek. Free parking and shuttles are available throughout the event.
The Slavic Festival is looking for volunteers to help with food preparation and grounds set up before the event, servers and cashiers during the Festival and clean-up help Sunday.
Dance practice for the Sugar Creek Ethnic Dance Troupe and Kolo Kids has begun. Practices are Monday nights at the Sugar Creek Gym.
With the Sugar Creek Slavic Festival a month away, we're excited to announce the schedule for the two-day event June 7 and 8 on the Mike Onka Memorial Building Grounds.
