The eighth annual Romanian Food Festival will be held from November 1 to 3, at Saint Mary’s Romanian Orthodox Church, in Colleyville. More than just polenta and traditional folk dances, the festival will make sure that you “pofta bunta” (enjoy your meal) with activities and entertainment, including traditional music, sporting
exhibitions, arts and crafts and a kids’ corner.

Romanian dishes include sour soup, pastries and pies, vegetable dishes, sweets, polenta, cheeses, schnitzel, breads and an abundance of meats, especially pork. Wine and beer will be available.
The kids’ corner includes childfriendly activities such as a petting zoo, a bounce house, cotton candy and face painting. Live music, painting and gymnastic exhibitions, traditional folk dances and vendor booths will be available throughout each day.
