Event description

Description


Free Fun for all!

In Eastern Slavonic cultures, Maslenitsa (Rus., Belarus.) or Masnytsja (Ukr.) is an analog of the western Carnival.

There is almost the same fun before the Lent but with its specific peculiarities having roots in ancient Eastern Slavonic heathen views.
Fair, live Slavic music, Slavic folk choirs (totally live!)), Slavic round dances (khorovod), quadrille, theater performance with fire and knights-bogatyrs (crazy sword fights are included).

If you want to see how Slavic Mardi Gras Maslenitsa was celebrated, be sure to watch the movie "The Barber of Siberia," (Sibirskiy Tsirlyunik). The plot undergoes a wonderful twist during a raucous Maslenitsa celebration in Moscow.

In addition, there will be vendors offering bliny and other traditional food, colorful souvenirs Pryaniki (Russian fun-shaped ginger-bread), handmade gifts and much more. You can have fun with traditional Line dance Kadrille and ritual circle dance Khorovod.
