Traditional Food Highlights Binghamton Slovak Festival Sunday
I grew up with traditional Slovak food as my grandmother came over from Slovakia as a little girl, all alone, learned the English language the best she could and somewhere along the way, learned to cook the best Slovak food in Binghamton. Amazing Slovak food.
As the St. Cyril’s Annual Parish Festival returns this weekend on the church grounds, on Clinton Street in Binghamton’s First Ward, it always brings back priceless memories of my grandma, mom, my aunts and uncles, and the wonderful times we shared as a family at these picnics.
If you want to sample the most amazing Slovak cuisine, St. Cyril’s Parish Picnic is a must but it’s a one-day only event. The parishioners work hard at this church fundraiser, with all the profits going to keeping the church open. It’s a great family-friendly festival with children and adult games, a $3000.00 raffle and live music by some hot local bands.
Here’s what to expect:
Where: St. Cyril’s Church, 148 Clinton Street, Binghamton
When: Sunday July 28th from 11am-6:30pm. Rain or shine, under the tents.
Live Entertainment: The Accords 11:30am-2pm, Nyshot’s Groove 2:30-6:30pm
Food: Ethnic Foods (Halupki, Halusky, Pierogi), Sausage & Peppers, Chicken Barbecue, Bake Sales, Beer, Soda and more.
Say hi to the lovely Polka Princess, the incredible Barb Mack from our sister station, WNBF.
I wouldn’t miss this food festival for the world. I hope to see you there.
