2nd Annual Serb-Fest!

Serbian Cross BACKGROUND Serbian Cross

“A Taste of Serbia” began in October 2020. The idea behind this parish festival was to bring the Serbian foods and flavors that many have grown to love (thanks to other Church events over the years and McKeesport's International Village) but incorporate more of the Serbian hospitality and culture for our patrons. In early 2020, a lot of planning and creative ideas were laid out for the inaugural year. All of our volunteers, friends, kumovi, and loved ones wanted to make it as memorable as possible and build upon it for years to come. Similar to just about everyone who lived through 2020, we too were deeply impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. After long debates and a parish-wide vote of whether or not to proceed with a much-scaled back version of the festival, the majority voted in favor of having A “Small” Taste of Serbia in October 2020.

As October grew near and the COVID-19 pandemic raged across our country for much of 2020, we honestly had very low expectations for the first year of the festival. However, thanks only to our Lord God and Savior, Jesus Christ, we are proud to say that it surpassed all expectations for its first year. In 2021 (and God-willing many more years to come), we are happy to continue with "A Taste of Serbia" but enhance the experience - based on feedback we received. Most notably there will be enhanced ordering methods and a much larger menu to choose from. We invite all of you back this year to join us in love and fellowship! Dobro nam Došli! (Welcome!)
