6th Annual Russian Festival: Event Details
All Are Welcome!

Our 6th Annual Russian Festival is a family friendly event where we open the doors of our community to the greater Sacramento Area.  At our event guests are able to get to know our parish community of Holy Ascension Russian Orthodox Church. It is possible to view the beautiful interior of our church building. If you have any questions about the church, our parish, or Orthodoxy in general, there will be two church tours at 2:05pm and 3:35pm. Our festival is a fund raising event that helps our community be able to function and bring programs to our families. The proceeds from our past festivals have helped renovate our parish buildings, most recently gilding our beautiful gold domes, and it will be possible to see these results at this year’s festival!
