Celebrating Lithuanian Arts and Culture
Hungry for the world’s best potato pancakes? Yearning to meet the Lithuanian-American community? In the market for amber jewelry? Craving the taste of kugelis, balandėliai, and fried bread? Curious about Lithuanian music and dance? Thirsty for Švyturys or Kalnapilis? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then our Annual Mugė Lithuanian Festival on Saturday, November 1st and Sunday, November 2nd is for you!
Both days are packed with fun for the entire family! From live music and folk dance performances to artisan jewelry and crafts to face painting and authentic Lithuanian comfort food, this Lithuanian fair is a popular crowd pleaser every year. Visit our newly renovated Cultural Center to learn more about Lithuanian heritage and find your ancestors’ birthplace on our map.
Join us for the delectable old world dishes our mothers and grandmothers taught us to prepare. We proudly serve our best Lithuanian recipes: balandėliai, blynai, kugelis, poppy seed rolls, honey cakes, and many more delicious treats.
Our bars are stocked with a huge variety of cold imported Lithuanian beers. Plus, we offer a selection of popular wines and your favorite mixed drinks.
The Mugė Lithuanian fair is a fabulous opportunity for full immersion in Lithuanian culture and tradition. Enjoy live entertainment, eat, drink, see old friends, and meet the rest of Philadelphia’s Lithuanian community.
We look forward to seeing you at the 37th Annual Mugė Lithuanian Festival! Until then, please save the dates by joining our Mugė events on Facebook Saturday and Sunday. Invite your friends and help us spread the word about this fabulous weekend fundraiser!
