Slavic Bakers Invited to Show Their Skills

2014 Simply Slavic Baking Contest Winners

Growing up Slavic in the Mahoning Valley meant slices of kolachi or homemade chrusciki in your lunch box instead of Twinkies and Oreos. The organizers of Simply Slavic want to encourage the perpetuation of those recipes and traditions.

One way they do so is the Annual Slavic Baking Competition to be held at the 5th Annual Simply Slavic Festival on Saturday, June 20th 2015. Organizers are inviting the region’s best amateur bakers to put their favorite recipe to the test!

Simply Slavic in the Community

On Saturday, June 20, 2015 from Noon-Midnight on Federal Plaza East, Simply Slavic will continue its mission of educating area residents about the history of the Slavic people that helped build the Mahoning Valley. But people don’t have to wait until then to start learning!

Simply Slavic in the Schools

Thanks to the generous donation of YSU’s Slavic Student Association, festival organizers are able to again offer two preview programs!
