This weekend, Saturday February 6 and Sunday February 7 marks exactly six months away from the historic annual festival at St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church in Merrillville, Indiana – Serb Fest 2016 will take place August 5, 6, and 7.

This means it has probably been about 6 months since some have had the opportunity to dance the kolo or fill-up on cevaps and krofne. Fortunately this weekend you can get all this at St. Sava in Merrillville, Indiana!

While there isn’t necessarily an official “Halfway to Serb Fest 2016” party, we do have two very special events taking place in our new Pavilion at St. Sava that will be carrying the festival spirit where you can get ready for Serb Fest 2016.

Join us Saturday evening, February 6 at the St. Sava Pavilion beginning at 6 p.m. for a Mardi Gras party – A Serbian Zabava with a Cajun Flare. It’s a family-friendly event with great music, great food, and lots of kolo dancing under a special light show by DJ Vinko! We’ll be featuring Cajun style food, a special menu for kids, famous krofne, and palacinke. Children 8th grade and under get in for free.

Then, join us Sunday, February 7 at the St. Sava Pavilion beginning at 1 p.m. where the St. Sava Obilic Legends Soccer Team is hosting a party to watch the NFL Football Championship Game. There is no charge at the door. We’ll have lots of good foods – cevaps, chicken, and all sorts of pastries throughout the afternoon and during the game. You can also learn about the exciting season ahead for our 2016 soccer players and enjoy watching some American Football along the way.

It’s been a long six months since our last Serb Fest where you had a chance like this to enjoy a weekend of fellowship, culture, food, and music all in one place.
