The Mahoning Valley Slovak Fest helps to support the education of our children, the Slovak churches, and the Slovak organizations of the Mahoning Valley through helping to preserve the heritage and customs that were brought to the valley by churches, parishes, organizations, and individuals of Slovak heritage. The Slovak community has played a large role in our community’s history and this festival pays tribute to that role.
We hope that you all come enjoy this great day with us! We would love to see you!
