WELCOME!

The Sixth Annual Romanian Festival of Greater Detroit welcomes the public to Saint George Romanian Orthodox Cathedral, on Saturday, September 18 (12pm-11pm) and Sunday, September 19 (12pm-9pm). A variety of events, displays and attractions will offer you and your family a wonderful and memorable experience — promising to be the biggest and best event yet!

Delicious homemade foods and pastries will be available for dine in or take home. Try traditional sarmale (cabbage rolls), flavorful mititei, mămăliga (polenta), and more.

Watch and learn traditional dances during the special demonstrations, and be sure to  sample imported wines, beer and mineral waters. Purchase pastries, tortes, nut rolls and more in the bakery, and enjoy warm doughnuts, clatite (crepes), and coffee at our outdoor cafe!

Displays will educate you, and a new marketplace bazaar with a variety vendors will provide the opportunity to purchase icons, t-shirts, art, books and other gifts. Tours of the Cathedral offer a chance to view iconography and learn about the Orthodox Church, and the exhibit area will share the rich diversity of Romanian life. Part of the Cathedral choir will offer brief concerts throughout the weekend, sharing some of our rich Orthodox musical tradition. Children will surely love our kids area with a giant slide, moon bouncer, games, face painting and, on Sunday, to take a real pony or horseback ride!

We welcome the world-renowned DOINA TIMISULUI ENSEMBLE & ORCHESTRA direct from Romania with soloists to entertain you! Dance and enjoy traditional and modern music with orchestra and DJ! Also, we anticipate Detroit’s own “Românasul” Folk Ensemble, and others offering unique entertainment as well!

We invite you to join us during the Holy Services throughout the weekend as well. Saturday at 5:00pm, the evening service of Vespers will be celebrated, then on Sunday morning, the Matins service begins at 9:00am. At 10:00am we anticipate the entrance of His Grace, Bishop IRINEU Duvlea, Auxiliary Bishop of our diocese, and the celebration of the main service of our Church, The Divine Liturgy. Services are offered in both the
English and Romanian languages, so we sincerely hope both our Orthodox friends as well as those from other faiths will be with us.
