About this Event

Come and enjoy the age old Slavic tradition of Maslenitsa (also known as “Cheesefare Week”, a Russian Mardi Gras) - a festival to say farewell to winter and herald the coming of Spring!! This is always celebrated the week before Great Lent begins when no meat is allowed but dairy products, various fish, seafood and vodka are plentiful!

Feast on endless amounts of hot, delicious blini smothered in butter and sour cream, caviar, smoked fish and other toppings, chasing them down with shots of ice cold vodka!

Enjoy the sounds of balalaikas with “Barynya” a folk trio and spectacular performances by dancers that will dazzle you!

Prepare to fall in love with our own young dance troupe, “MatryoshkiDC” as well as delight in a short premiere performance by L’Etoile, Russian Ballet Academy!

Do not miss this very unique and special event!

You might even see a dancing bear or gypsy!

We look forward to seeing you and your friends at the festivities of Maslenitsa!
