0

0Food, song, dance and football were all a part of Serbian Fest once again at the Serbian Orthodox Church on the weekend of May 19-20. The event gives Foothills and Calgary residents a glimpse of Serbian culture with the Frula traditional dance society, traditional baked goods, cevapi (chae-vap-ee) sausages, and even a soccer tournament.

Proceeds from the event go towards the future Serbian-Canadian cultural centre and the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation.
