On behalf of EuroFest BC Society, we extend our most cordial invitation to you and your community to this year’s Europe Day event!
On Saturday, May 9th, 2015, from 10am – 5pm it will be a day of food, cultural dance, cultural dress, and a great showcase of the things to come at this years European Festival. So bring friends and family, admission to watch the performances is FREE, and a teeming plate of Polish and Hungarian favorites costs a mere $10.
The event will be hosted at the “Hungarian Cultural Society Of Greater Vancouver”, located at 728 Kingsway, Vancouver, BC.
In the evening, once the all-ages crowd has gone home for the night, there will be a “Euro Dance Club” from 9pm – 2am, which will have a cover charge of $10, and which features 4 live DJ’s!
Food and Venue have been arranged by the Hungarian and Polish community. As a major component to this day is cultural dance, we urge any cultural dance ensembles who would be interested in dancing during the event, to book a time slot by sending an email or making a phone call to Marysia Filipowski (firstname.lastname@example.org or 604.525.9160) detailing desired show time, and the length of your program. The sooner we get your response, the more likely you are to get your desired show time; so don’t wait, act now!
You are encouraged to wear any traditional dress that you are can, as it is always an attention getter, and this is a great opportunity to create awareness for the European Festival on May 30 &31, while enjoying a day of fun, friends, and great food! We will also be having a Photo Booth that will allow anyone who wishes, to try on traditional dress and get photos taken. Prints are produced nearly instantaneously, so people can take a part of the day home with them! This is a great opportunity for us all to work on our dance routines, and to create more awareness for the Big Show at the end of May, and celebrate our diverse heritage! So, come one, come all, and help make this a day to remember, and enjoy “A taste of the old country”!
