Russian Cultural Gardens

The Russian Cultural Gardens is a non-profit, tax exempt  501 (c) (3) organization dedicated to promoting the Russian Heritage and Russian cultural influence in America.

Established in 2011, The Russian Cultural Gardens has a prominent goal of building the Russian Cultural Garden as a part of the Cultural Gardens of Cleveland in the Rockefeller Park.

We are attracting support from the Russian community in Cleveland, throughout Ohio and from around the United States (The Cleveland Cultural Gardens of course is a unique and one-of-a-kind place in America and it attracts a lot of interest from people outside of Cleveland). We plan to raise sufficient funds to build a complementary attractive garden in the park and will work hard to achieve this goal. Those funds are coming from  businesses and private residents of Cleveland and other cities We would also welcome, of course, Friends of Russian culture to contribute. 

Russian Cultural Garden is proud to bring a tradition of celebrating the Maslenitsa - Annual Russian pancake cook-off  festival to Cleveland that quickly became one of the most popular Winter events in town. Since 2014, Russian Cultural Garden has been promoting the young musicians of Cleveland and local music teachers via Annual Piano Marathon in the Garden. 

In 2017, the new Gifted Youth Fund has been established to support young local musicians who are showing significant achievements in fields of instrumental music, vocal, and dancing and are volunteering for the Cleveland Cultural Gardens. 

Please, support our cause by attending our charitable events, by volunteering, or simply cheering for the Garden. We want to proudly represent The Cleveland Cultural Gardens, The City of Cleveland, and our culture and heritage through our Russian Cultural Garden.


 Thank you very much!
