Welcome to the annual Melbourne Russian Festival on Saturday 8 February 2020 from 10am to 8pm at the gorgeous Royal Exhibition Building, 9 Nicholson St, Carlton. Experience the richness of Russian culture, its delicious authentic cuisine, stunning performances, unique masterclasses and more as the venue is transformed into a traditional Russian village.

Enjoy performances as they kick off on the central stage. Don't be shy, join in and learn some traditional steps. Some of the masterclasses feature well-known traditional folk arts, many centuries old and cannot be found elsewhere. Take a look at the art and craft fair for some iconic souvenirs, including famous Russian wooden dolls known as Matreshka, or hand-made Russian jewellery. The Children's Village has lots of fun activities for kids of all ages, and a Beer Garden and Food Stalls to relax with a glass of beer and travel through the Russian food heritage by enjoying authentic delicacies.

If you're handy and crafty in traditional Russian style and imbued with talent and skills you'd like to share, contact Alyona (0411 287 343) or Lily (0401 493 542) to participate in the Festival and run a master class.

The success of every huge event relies on its trusty volunteers. If you'd like to be part of a team and volunteer, why not REGISTER HERE. Not only is it a great learning experience, it's also an opportunity to network and get insight into the operations of a big event.
