Julian Calendar New Year

Julian Calendar New Year
For those who don’t quite finish ringing in the New Year on December 31ST, the Julian Calendar New Year Party was the best European bash in town and the place to ring in the year while dancing everything from the polka and the kolomyjka, waltz, two-step, schottische, frailach, czardas, hassapiko, mazurka to jigs and reels all to the music of top ethnic musicians from across the state, and a colorful blend of ethnic music and dance from Russia and Eastern Europe. An exotic assortment of traditional Eastern European, Balkan and Russian food and drink and a craft bazaar completed the festival.
