Hundreds of volunteers make each festival edition possible. It takes a lot of love and effort to put together such an event.
Preparations start few months before the festival date with permit applications: food permit, alcohol permit, event permit, fire marshal permit, security permit, and few others.
In the same time we take care of other essential stuffs: artistic program, refrigerator truck, tents and tables rental, portable toilets, property cleaning, parking, marketing.
And of course the FOOD. Thousands of “sarmale” (stuffed cabbage), thousands of pastrami, thousands of “mititei” (Romanian sausages), thousands of cakes and many other goodies. All prepared voluntarily by Saint Andrew Church ladies.
And that’s just the beginning. The real effort comes on the festival days.
Come to the festival and become Romanian for few hours. Give us a SMILE and tell us how good the food was. That a simple way of supporting our effort.
