Golden Gates/Moscow Nights

Performances at 12pm and 6:30pm


Come and enjoy Russian culture and experience the unique folk and ethnic heritage of this part of the world for the 5th year in Apex!! The Golden Gates folk dance group and the Moscow Nights Trio are back with two performances this year and will perform Russian & Georgian music and dances. This all day festival includes Russian and Georgian folk games and dances and workshops for kids and adults. Traditional Russian food and desserts such as Shashlik, Olivie, Blini will be available all day long and plenty of vendors to peruse! 

This year will have a new twist as we move part of the Festival outside and keep some of the festivities inside! Don’t worry.... You’ll be warm and toasty wherever you are and more comfortable with the extra space. The Festival schedule and activities will be updated closer to the event. Stay tuned and follow us on Facebook.
