YOUNGSTOWN

Organizers of the Simply Slavic Festival are seeking volunteers.

The annual festival, now in its seventh year, will be June 17 from noon to midnight on East Federal Street, downtown.

Volunteers of every age, skill and ability are welcome.

Help is needed for everything from setup and take- down to ticket sales, helping with the baking contest, and assisting in cultural displays and the children’s areas.

Various two-hour shifts are available, and every volunteer will get free admission, drink tickets and complimentary tickets to the Slavic follow-up dinner afterward.

For information, contact help@simplyslavic.org or call 330-333-1441.

Simply Slavic was created in 2011 to educate both the region’s large number of Slavic descendants and the community at large about Slavic heritage.

The festival features live Slavic music, folk-dance performances, homemade food, children’s learning areas, educational exhibits and workshops and ethnic vendors.

For information, go to simplyslavic.org.
