The three-day performance spectacular will transport your spirit to Russia of old with ballads, folk songs, ballet, folk dance, and much more; featuring such popular groups as the Slavyanka Russian Chorus, the San Francisco Balalaika Ensemble, Konevets quartet from St. Petersburg, Russia, local favorites Nikolai Massenkoff-world renowned bass, Natalia Borisova’s Russian Collection, Russian Center Dancers, Vladimir Riazantsev, and the Firebird Dance Ensemble.

Be sure not to miss the historic treasures in the Museum of Russian Culture, and delight in the fantastic Art Gallery to peruse or purchase originals by our own local Russian artists. Plus there will be face painting and crafts for the kids or pick up souvenirs like Russian scarves, Baltic amber, lacquer boxes and matryoshka dolls.

Discounted parking will be available for $7 at the parking garage across the street. If you have any questions or concerns about ticketing information, ticket day/person transfers, or anything else, please reach out to svetlana.klestoff@gmail.com.
