2nd Annual Bulgarian Festival

"Holy Trinity" Bulgarian Eastern Orthodox Church will host its 2nd Annual Bulgarian Ethnic Harvest Festival on September 30th, 2018 from 10AM-7PM.

Our first festival, held in October of 2017, was very well received, and we are working very hard to make this year's festival an even greater success! Our ultimate goal is to make this into an annual tradition and expand the festival into a multi-day event that attracts many attendees from the Greater St. Louis Area and well beyond!

The festival will feature a variety of authentic Bulgarian dishes for sale, as well as live music by the popular Bulgarian folk ensemble "Bulgarika," performances by two folk dance groups, and many opportunities for attendees to learn the dances themselves. There will also be inflatables, games, prizes, and other activities for children of all ages.

Admission to the Bulgarian Festival is free. With authentic food, music, and dancing, as well as games and activities for all age groups, there will be hours of fun for everyone.

We hope you will donate to show your support for this effort and assist us in covering the many expenses associated with hosting this festival, such as: ingredients for the many authentic Bulgarian dishes, equipment (spit-roaster for lamb) and supplies (decorations, disposable tableware, to-go boxes, etc.), licensing/permit fees, inflatable rentals, and compensation for live entertainment, among other expenses. 

This Festival will benefit the historic "Holy Trinity" Bulgarian Church, which was established in 1907, making it the first and oldest Bulgarian Eastern Orthodox Church established outside of Bulgaria. Proceeds will be used to complete important church renovations and restore the Church Hall.

We hope that you will support the success of our 2nd Annual Bulgarian Ethnic Harvest Festival, as well as its growth in future years, and ensure the longevity of our historic "Holy Trinity" Church for generations to come!
