Description
Cleveland Kurentovanje (koo-rahn-toh-VAHN-yah) is a multi-day "Slovenian Mardi Gras" festival, celebrating the end of winter and the beginning of spring. Founded in 2012, with the first event held in 2013, we host a multi-day festival filled with cultural and festive events, which culminates in a day-long Parade & Festival celebration on Saturday complete with costumes, a parade, ethnic food and drink, musical and cultural performances, and Kurents — mythical creatures who are believed to chase away winter and usher in spring.

The mission of Cleveland Kurentovanje is…

1.) Culture: To promote and celebrate Slovenian culture

2.) Merry-Making: To create a fun and lively experience for all festival-goers

3.) Growth: To use the energy from our event to contribute to the momentum in the St. Clair-Superior neighborhood, which historically, was home for generations of Slovenian immigrants.

The festival takes place in the St. Clair-Superior Neighborhood in beautiful Cleveland, Ohio. While the festival is spread out over the neighborhood, you can use this address, which is at the heart of the action to get yourself pointed in the right direction:
