    This event is designed to be a social outing that you may find of interest visually and gastronomically.  Many of the items found in the museum would have been in our ancestors' homes. It will also give us an opportunity to learn about their ethnic neighbors.  Take a step back in time and also meet other Carpatho-Rusyn Society members.

    One World Day - 75th Anniversary

    When: August 30, 2020  - 11:00 to 6:00

    Where: Cleveland Cultural Gardens Rusin Garden, 930 East Blvd, Cleveland, OH

    This year should be extra special for the Cleveland Cultural Gardens.  Celebrating the 75th anniversary of One World Day will surely take the activities to a new level.  This is a fun day for families to learn about the many cultures that comprise the Cleveland area.  We have found, from working in our garden, that even on a very hot day the trees offer shade and there is almost always a breeze.  More will be forthcoming as the day approaches.
