Romanian Festival at St Mary Romanian Orthodox Cathedral

18th Annual Romanian Festival
St Mary Romanian Orthodox Cathedral
3256 Warren Rd. Cleveland
August 18, 2023

St. Mary's, founded in 1904, is the oldest Romanian Orthodox parish in the United States. Prior to the building of today's cathedral in Cleveland's Kamm's Corners neighborhood in 1960, the church's home was on Detroit Avenue in the old Romanian area of the city.

St Mary Romanian Festival

The Festival featured Romanian Cuisine, Imported Beverages, Romanian Pastries, Audio-Visual Romanian Heritage, Church & Museum Tours, Games For Kids, Vendors, Souvenirs and more. One of the volunteers was kind enough to describe on video some of the pastries they had including Savarine, Dobos, Bombe and a Romanian Salami which is actually a sweet.

Entertainment included Transylvania Band, Ceata Children's Romanian Folk Dance Group, Doina Dance Group and a Romanian Costumes Parade.

Here are 2 videos of a young lady singing in Romanian at the Festival.

Here are a few pictures from the 2023 Festival.
