Russian Winter Festival

The Russian Winter Festival is a one-day annual event which presents a microcosm of the Russian culture in an entertaining and artistic manner. The event is held on Russia's Old New Year, which in accordance to the Tsarist calendar, falls in mid-January. The event was held in 2005 for the first time.

The Russian Winter Festival features a vivacious mix of Russian music, dance and street performances. Aesthetically constructed Russian kiosks sell handicrafts and traditional Russian children games. Delicacies such as blinis (Russian pancakes) and pirozhkis (Russian stuffed dumplings), borsch (beetroot soup) and shashlik (Russian kebabs) are all there to be savoured.

Artists who performed in 2008 at the festival included Fabrika, Lyudmila Ryumina (Russian folk singer), and the Russian National Dance Show.

As the sun sets, a spectacular laser show and performances by trapeze artists enthralls the audience. Dancing cadet bands add vibrancy to the finale.
