The Intercultural Dance Festival 2017 takes the stage Saturday, May 20 as Srbadija Folklore plays host to ethnic dance groups from around the Midwest and Canada at St. Sava Church, 9191 Mississippi Street, Merrillville, IN.

Srbadija Folklore, the youth folklore dance group at St. Sava, is diligently confirming dance groups who will be performing in this special showcase of dance from different cultures and delight all with Serbian cuisine and the famous bake sale available during the event. So far 12 different dance groups have confirmed they will be performing and will be sharing their talents.

This will be the third consecutive year of the Intercultural Festival hosted in the new Pavilion at St. Sava that draws hundreds of people and unites through culture and dance.

This year there will be some familiar dance groups from previous festivals and some new additions to the lineup. More details of the names of the groups performing and some background about what you can expect to experience will be posted in the weeks and days leading up to the event.

This year groups representing Serbian, Polish, Greek, and other Eastern European nationalities will be performing, with more groups still joining the lineup. Performers this year will be traveling from as far away as Alberta, Niagara Falls, and Ontario in Canada.
