St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church will hold its
32nd annual Russian/Slavic food festival this weekend.

It’s a food event like none other in the Birmingham area. The 32nd annual St. Nicholas Russian/Slavic Food Festival takes place this weekend in Brookside.

The free 2-day celebration includes homemade Russian dishes, a Saturday performance by the Atlanta Balalaika Society and tours of the church. A Beriozka store will offer souvenirs and gifts for sale.

On the menu are piroshkis (meat pies), halupki (stuffed cabbage), borscht, kolach (semi-sweet pastry with a dollop of fruit) and spiced Russian tea. Food is available in platters or a la carte.

Festival hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at noon to 5 p.m. Sunday. St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church is located at 105 Park Ave., Brookside, about 15 miles northwest of Birmingham [map].
