Fill up on homemade borscht, pirozhki, and authentic Russian sweets. Wash it all down with hot tea from the samovar or a Siberian-cold sample or two from the infused vodka competition. Watch a puppet show, get your hair braided, and take in some traditional Russian dancing—all complete with ornate Eastern European garb. Musical performances range from Russian classical compositions to rural folk groups picking balalaikas and fanning accordions. The best of Russian culture comes to Washtenaw County in this two-day celebration.

Saturday, October 4, 11am-8pm; Sunday, October 5, 1pm-7pm, St. Vladimir’s Russian Orthodox Church, 9900 Jackson Rd., Dexter.
