Rusyn: Ambridge Festival Celebrates Carpatho-Rusyn Culture

The 13th annual Rusyn Food Festival begins today and runs through Saturday at St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church's air-conditioned parish center.
This fest features not only abundant East Slavic food but also music, dancing and demonstrations of icon writing, woodcarving, Easter egg decorating, weaving and lacemaking.

According to organizer John Righetti, it is the US's only summer fest dedicated entirely to Carpatho-Rusyn culture.
