Learn more about the "Matryoshka" Festival

It is hard to believe that four years have passed since a group of like-minded friends have continued the tradition of ethnic festivals for the Russian-speaking public. We are a large and diverse community and speak our native tongue at home - Russian, Ukrainian, Belorussian, Armenian, Georgian, Uzbek... But our festival united everyone! Matryoshka is the Philadelphia Russian-speaking community's largest annual festival, and is a wonderful opportunity to gather once a year for a sunny afternoon of music, food, friends and fun; to meet your former alumni, colleagues, travel companions and mischief partners. For businesses we provide an opportunity to reach one of the largest communities with news of their products and services. For artists/musicians/performers we provide an open environment and a friendly audience. For our children, happiness for their grandmothers, grandfathers, moms, and dads in seeing their rising star shine with all the beauty of their youth and talent. Friends, welcome to Matryoshka!
