CU Russian Festival

  • University of Colo. - Boulder Northwest corner of campus near Broadway & University

This annual festival on the lawn at CU-Boulder has become one of our favorite signs of spring. It takes place on the northwest corner of the University of Colorado-Boulder campus, on the lawn between Hale Science Building and Varsity Pond near Broadway and University. It starts around 4:00 p.m. and Planina sings two 20-minute sets between 4:30 and 5:30 p.m.

The festival is produced by CU's Slavic Languages Department--a department where TWO Planina members currently work.

This family event is free and open to the public. Participate in traditional Russian games, eat traditional Russian foods prepared by the students, see traditional effigy dolls and costumes, and enjoy Russian, Ukrainian, Georgian, Polish and Balkan songs live with Planina.

Rain or shine! In case of wet weather Planina will perform on the patio of the west side of the McKenna building.
