Maslenitsa 2017

The Russian Ethnic Representative Council invite everybody to come and celebrate Maslenitsa – Slavic Pancake Festival.

Maslenitsa – Slavic Pancake Festival is a celebration of, songs, dances, the symbolic burning of effigies and, of course, pancakes.

All this, and more, can be seen at our festival, which will take place February 25, 2017 at the Royal Exhibition Building.

This year, our festival is the largest Slavic event in Australia. Guests will be able to see performances of Slavic folklore, enjoy traditional Slavic cuisine, take part in competitions and games, as well as buy souvenirs and other consumer goods. The children’s village will operate with different pursuits, and for adults there will be a beer garden, where you can try different beers.

Oh! And if you get tired of the noise and fun, then you can go to the Russian Tea House and reading room.

Maslenitsa is a festival for the whole family! We will be glad to see you on this colourful celebration!
