The seventh annual Romanian Food Festival will be held from November 2 to 4, at Saint Mary’s Romanian Orthodox Church, in Colleyville. More than just polenta and traditional folk dances, the festival will make sure that guests “pofta bunta” (enjoy your meal) with activities and entertainment, including traditional music, sporting exhibitions, arts and crafts and a kids’ corner.
Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children 6 to 12 years old. Parking is free.
Romanian cuisine is a diverse blend of dishes from Balkan, German, Serbian and Hungarian traditions, resulting in a unique taste and character. Romanian dishes include sour soup, pastries and pies, vegetable dishes, sweets, polenta, cheeses, breads and an abundance of meats, especially pork. Wine is the beverage of choice, with a wide variety produced in Romania.
A kids’ corner includes childfriendly activities such as a petting zoo, a bounce house and face painting. Live music, gymnastic exhibitions, traditional folk dances and vendor booths with an assortment of wares will be available throughout each day.
