We would like to offer you this business proposal to sponsor the International Yarmarka Festival in Sacramento. Your participation will be an honor to our local Russian speaking Community. The 17th annual International Russian-Ukrainian-American Yarmarka Festival will take place on May 16th, 2015 in Southside Park in downtown Sacramento attracting about 10 thousand people during the day. Sponsored by Afisha Russian Media this festival seems to be the most popular event of the year for our Russian speaking community. Each Yarmarka Festival takes the entire year between them to plan the next, and this proves to be more effective every year in creating public awareness and curiosity about European culture.
A traditional Slavic fair originated in the 19th century from a simple market place event, it evolved into elaborate Festivals with musicians, dancers and artists performing in the town square surrounded by local merchants.
We hope to bring back some of this festive spirit with concerts and display local businesses. This is a wonderful opportunity for Russian and Ukrainian people to celebrate their culture – and for Americans to enjoy learning about other traditions.
Communal celebrations involving carefully planned programs, outpourings of respect, rejoicing, or high revelry, established by custom or sponsored by various cultural groups or organizations.
Yarmarka is a very memorable event for the whole Slavic community. The all-day-event features a number of bands and solo performers on a concert stage, entertainment and games for the children, picnics, food booths, arts&crafts booths, souvenirs, and products from local merchants, sports events, and much more. Native Russians who now live in the area and even out of state came together with the coordinators of the festival to create an exciting experience.
Afisha Radio, Russian Newspapers and TV will do remote broadcasts.
