First Time in Washington DC: An Unprecedented Slavic Festival That Brings All Slavic Nations Together
WASHINGTON DC On March 31st, the Slavic Cultural Festival Committee (SCFC) of the George Washington University will be hosting the first Slavic Spring Festival in Washington DC. This celebration of Slavic culture and history, a meeting of Slavic representatives and officials, is unprecedented in scope. All are cordially invited to partake in a day of traditional Slavic cuisine, dance, and folk music. The feature performance will be the 2004 winner of Eurovision Song Contest, Ruslana!
Initially, the festival concept envisioned an informal gathering for Slavic students and their respective embassies. However, thanks to the diligence and enthusiasm of the national representatives, the size of the guest list and level of prestige far exceeded the original scope of the project.
The festival is aimed at reaching unity through diversity and is a large undertaking combining the direction and input of the embassies of Belarus, Croatia, Czech Republic, Macedonia, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Ukraine. There will be ambassadors and prominent politicians from all corners of the Slavic world to reveal their unique national perspective and historical heritage. Representatives of Congress and various US government agencies will also be in attendance. Foreign and local mass media is welcome and encouraged to cover the event.
The festival will take place on the campus of the George Washington University, near the intersection of 21st Street and H Street NW from 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM on March 31, 2007. The event will be open to the public and the admission will be free of charge.
