Maslenitsa – Russian Mardi Gras

March 7, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Experience the traditions of this joyful, carnival-like holiday celebrated in Russia and other Slavic countries.

Eat lots of buttery blini (Russian pancakes), burn a scarecrow to symbolize the end of winter, practice or learn some Russian along the way.

This event is open to UW-Madison students, faculty, stuff, and their friends.
