The 2021 Festival is Cancelled, But…..

Keep checking back – We are planning to come back in 2022!

We have all been watching the long string of festivals and big events get cancelled all over.  Sadly, our festival must also follow this trend and be cancelled for this year also.  Hopefully, we will come back stronger than ever when the pandemic has come to an end, and things are a bit more settled.

In the meantime, we have two things to ask of you.

The Festival supports the St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in Saratoga. It is our biggest fundraiser of the year. Without it, our income is severely impacted. Will you help us get through this lean year so that we can bring back the Festival at a happier time?

No donation is too small, including virtual borsh size! You can donate with PayPal or Credit card here: Donate to the St. Nicholas Orthodox Church.

Thanks to all for a great 2019 Festival!


The festival is over. I hope you all had as much fun as we did. Thanks to our many volunteers and sponsors who made the event a success. Check back here for information on future events!
