The wonderful world of all things Serbian is at Darling Harbour on Saturday 10 February and Sunday 11 February. This free family-friendly cultural event will be filled with lots of delish foods to enjoy. Be tempted with the variety of tasty delights at the festival such as Serbian doughnuts, traditional pastries (burek and pita), tasty savoury dishes and other treats. There is a large range of traditional Serbian sweet and savoury delicacies to sample. Make sure you try Cevapi or Chevapchichi (grilled sausages), Pljeskavica (meat patties), Krofne (doughnuts) and my favourite, Palacinke (crepes). You may like to accompany it all with some Serbian beer (pivo) or wine (vino). Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks will be available including Knjaz Milos (Serbian mineral and natural water).

There are so many activities that they will be spread out across Darling Harbour from Tumbalong Park to Palm Grove. Highlights include traditional folk dance performances, showcasing the beautiful Serbian traditional costumes, circle dancing and live folk music. These cultural performances are social in that they bring the community together and are celebratory at weddings, Christmas and of course, festivals like this one. Make sure you mark these two special days in your calendar and bring your family and your friends to enjoy a weekend filled with cultural fun, music and food.
