Balkan Night Northwest!

March 5, 2016 at 3:00 pm – 11:45 pm

Come join us for the fifth annual Balkan Night Northwest, at St. Demetrios Hall on March 5th! Balkan Night Northwest is a joyous explosion of music, dance and tradition from all over the Balkans, from Albania, through Serbia, Croatia, Bosnia and Macedonia, Greece, Bulgaria, Romania and beyond! Come early and stay late to enjoy the Kukeri, the bell-wearing creatures (the friendlier cousins of the Krampus), who will greet the festival and romp throughout the night. The party starts at 3 pm, March 5th, at Saint Demetrios Hall (home of the Seattle Greek Festival), and brings wall-to-wall music until midnight. Kids welcome, no partners necessary! People of all ages are welcome, making this a family event for kids and grandparents alike. This year brings 30 bands providing non-stop music on two stages, with delicious ethnic food provided by the Seattle Croatian and Greek communities. Bring your friends! No dance experience necessary!
