11th Annual Slavic Festival

This year Slavic Community Center of NW in partnership with Portland Parks & Recreation and #SFFA will be holding the 11th annual Slavic Festival, which will take place on September 1, 2019 at the Gateway Discovery Park in Portland.

Throughout the years, hundreds of thousands of people were able to enjoy vibrant cultures of Eastern Europe, as we have provided a platform for dozens of local artists to showcase their skills on stage and off. This event also provides opportunities for local entrepreneurs, business owners and organizations to directly reach attendees. During last years festival we estimated that over 10,000+ people attended the event. The Slavic Festival reaches a wide demographic of attendees from all over the Pacific Northwest who are interested in different cultures and multicultural atmosphere. The festival would not have been so successful without the contributions and partnerships with corporations, local businesses and organizations.

This years lineup includes performances from Armenian, Ukrainian, Russian, Belarusian, Uzbek, Tajik and groups from other Eastern European and Central Asian nations. For sponsorship and vendor opportunities please send a DM or an email to info@slavicfamily.org.

У цьому році ми хочемо знову зібрати гостей на фестиваль, щоб не тільки відпочити в компанії добрих друзів, але і провести час пізнавально та з користю. До Орегону приїжджають люди різних національностей, з різних республік колишнього Радянського Союзу. У всіх – власна культура, свої традиції, національні костюми, пісні, танці, своя кухня, і навіть мова. Все це залишається важливим для нас і на американському континенті.

Ми знаємо, що серед тих, хто зараз читає цю інформацію, багато талановитих людей, які можуть співати, танцювати, займаються в різних спортивних секціях і театральних гуртках.

Cultural Connections: Celebrating Immigrant & Refugee Stories

Hello Refugee and Immigrant Collective Community:-)

I am really excited to be supporting "Youth Advocate for Immigrants and Refugees" (YAIR - https://www.youthadvocatespdx.org/). For the past 6 months I have been a part of several adults (Manuel and his organization has been an important resource) who have been supporting and thinking with these youth, as they have been steadily building relationships through conversations and story-exchanges with their peers in East Portland and beyond. Please read on and if you know of youth who would be interested in participating in this event, I would be most grateful for your help in sharing this information with them... 

I am also available to answer any questions you may have. The grant I received has a modest budget for helping with transportation money if folks want to car-pool and or do ride-share. Thank you for spreading the word - I am honored to be helping these young activists as they begin to learn and build bridges through conversation.

Warmly,
Suba
