September 5-6: International Festival in Raleigh

Our Association will participate with three events: cultural booth, food stand (first time)
and Lyman dancers from Baltimore. This year the Festival will be the main attraction of
the inauguration of the new Convention Center in downtown Raleigh: 2 E. South St.,
Raleigh. This promises to be a huge event, and thousands of people will be able to learn
about Ukrainian culture by visiting our stand, tasting Ukrainian food (borshcz, varenyky
and holubci) and admiring the dancers from Baltimore.
