Our beloved,

We have the joy and pleasure to invite you to a new edition (The 13th Edition) of the Romanian Festival, which will take place on 18th-20th May, 2018, on our property situated at 9111 River Rd., Potomac, MD 20854.

This year we celebrate the centennial of the historic Great Unification of Romania, and we intend to organize an unforgettable festival, full of cultural and spiritual events, completed with culinary satisfactions and the opportunity to spend a few hours outdoors in our beautiful garden. We invite you to join us in paying a unique homage to the spirit and traditions of the Romanian people, widely known and appreciated in all corners of the world.

And so, du...ring this festival, among the numerous specifically-Romanian products and culinary delights, we will offer: home-made sausages, grill-steaks, pork pastrami, the famous Romanian small skinless sausages called “mititei,” the traditional cabbage rolls with polenta (“mamaliga”), stuffed peppers, a variety of delicious soups, and many more. An assortment of vegetarian dishes will also be available.

The dessert sector will attract the public through a variety of home-made cakes, cookies and other sweets prepared with love by our talented volunteer ladies: cakes (“torte”), coffee-cakes, “eclaire,” amandines, “cozonac,” cheese rolls, apple pies, cookies (“fursecuri”), pancakes, and many more.

The bar will be well-stocked with a variety of distinct Romanian beer and wine assortments.

The festive and cheerful atmosphere will also be sustained by the richness of the Romanian folk music and dances. Local American artists, as well as Romanians from here and from various homeland places, will visit us especially for this event, and will call us to sing together, in one voice, some traditional Romanian melodies, and to join our hands in ancient “hora” and “invartita” dances in the garden of our community.

The Romanian spirituality will be present through the opportunity to visit our temporary church, and to share our vision to build here, close to the Capital of the United States, a Romanian orthodox cathedral, resembling the almost 500-year old “Moldovita” monastery church, well known as an object of world (UNESCO) treasure.

A few selected glorious moments from the history of the Romanian people will be evoked by the impersonated famous rulers Decebal (55-106), Vlad the Impaler (1428-1477) (“Vlad Dracula”), Stephen the Great (1433-1504) and Alexandru Ioan Cuza (1820-1873).

A folkloric exhibition will display various Romanian handicrafts and popular costumes.

A specially designed area will offer the children various field games, face painting, a bouncing-house, a petting-zoo garden, and many more activities and surprises.

What do you think? Have we persuaded you to join us at this feast of the Romanian spirit? We believe that your answer is YES, and that your presence will confer this Festival additional authenticity and uniqueness!!

You are very welcome!

TRADUCERE IN LIMBA ROMANA:

Dragii nostri,

Avem bucuria şi plăcerea de a vă invita la o noua editie (Editia a 13-a) a Festivalului Romanesc, care se va desfasura in perioada 18-20 mai, 2018, la proprietatea noastra situata la adresa 9111 River Rd., Potomac, MD 20854.

Anul acesta sarbatorim centenarul evenimentului istoric al Marii Uniri a Romaniei, si ne propunem sa realizam un festival de neuitat, plin de manifestari culturale si spirituale, intregite de satisfactii culinare si de oportunitatea de a petrece cateva ore in aer liber in frumoasa noastra gradina. Va invitam ca, impreuna, sa aducem un omagiu unic spiritului si traditiilor neamului romanesc, cunoscute si apreciate in toate colturile lumii!

Astfel, pe parcursul acestui festival, printre numeroasele produse si preparate culinare specific româneşti, vom oferi: cârnaṭi de casă, fripturi la gratar, pastrama de porc, binecunoscuṭii "mititei," traditionalele sarmale cu mămăliguta, ardei umpluti, o varietate de ciorbe gustoase, şi multe altele. Nu va lipsi un asortiment de preparate vegetariene.

Sectorul dulciurilor va atrage publicul printr-o larga varietate de prajituri de casa pregatite cu drag de talentatele noastre gospodine: torturi, eclaire, amandine, cozonaci, placinte cu branza si cu mere, fursecuri, clatite si multe altele.

Barul va fi bine aprovizionat cu varietati de bere, apa minerala si vinuri distincte romanesti.

Atmosfera de sărbătoare şi voie buna va fi sustinuta şi prin bogatia muzicii şi a dansurilor populare româneşti. Artisti americani locali, dar si romani de aici si de pe meleagurile natale ne vor vizita special pentru acest eveniment, si ne vor chema sa cantam impreuna, intr-un glas, traditionale melodii romanesti, si sa intindem hore si invartite stramosesti pe pamantul comunitatii noastre.

Spiritualutatea romaneasca isi va face simtita prezenta prin posibilitatea vizitarii bisericii noastre temporare de pe proprietate si impartasirea viziunii comunitatii noastre de a construi aici, in proximitatea capitalei Statelor Unite, o catedrala ortodoxa romaneasca, dupa modelul bisericii vechi de aproape 500 ani “Moldovita,” cunoscuta ca obiect de patrimoniu universal (UNESCO).

Cateva momente glorioase din istoria romanilor vor fi evocate de figurile impersonate ale domnitorilor de seama Decebal (55-106), Vlad Tepeş (1482-1477), Stefan cel Mare (1433-1504) si Alexandru Ioan Cuza (1820-1873).

O expoziṭie folclorica special amenajată va prezenta diferite obiecte de artizanat si costume populare româneşti.

O zona separata va fi amenajata pentru copii, oferind diferite jocuri de teren, “face painting”, o instalatie “bouncing house”, o gradina “petting zoo” și multe alte activitati si surprize.

Ce ziceti? V-am convins sa fiti alaturi de noi la aceasta sarbatoare a spiritului romanesc? Suntem siguri ca da, iar prezenta dumneavoastra va aduce acestui festival un spor de autenticitate si unicitate!!

Va asteptam cu drag!
