Enjoy a fun, free family day out at the Maslenitsa Russian folk festival in Trafalgar Square.

Marking the end of winter, Maslenitsa combines a Russian Orthodox religious celebration with an older pagan festival welcoming the arrival of spring.

During the festival, Trafalgar Square is transformed into a large entertainment zone with live music, children’s shows and dancing. Watch as folk musicians and entertainers perform traditional Russian songs and dances, with plenty of audience interaction.

Sample delicious Russian food, such as beef stroganoff, borscht (beetroot soup) and pelmeni (dumplings), from the stalls set up on Trafalgar Square.

With a bustling bazaar and craft activities to also get involved in, this mini festival offers all the best in Russian culture in one handy London location.
