Romanian traditional fest Martisor, celebrated in San Francisco
At the festival, there were Romanians as well as other residents of California, therefore the organizers presented "Mărţişorul" as a "spring feast celebrated by the peoples of Romania and Moldova for the last 8,000 years".
The Festival "Mărţişor" is a tribute to spring and youth, an open invitation to everyone to get to know Romanian and Moldovan traditions, cuisine and folk music. The menu included tasty Moldavian pies and Romanian wine. The list of guests also included international pop artists, various musicians and authentic gypsy singers.
It is important to note that the Festival "Mărţişor" was organized by the "Olympic Foundation" NGO led by George Kulea, and all money raised at the event was donated to the international fund "Youth Sports", which sponsored a sports school in a deprived area on the border between Moldova and Ukraine, a genuine source of champion athletes.
The main sponsor was Dario Sattui, the owner of two of the most popular wineries in Napa Valley: Castello di Amorosa and Sattui. Dario's love for medieval art and traditions of the nations of Europe is well known. "The "Mărţişor" Festival was held on an island very close to the San Francisco Treasure Island, offering the most beautiful panorama of San Francisco," reveals singer Abigail Budak, who moved to the United States in 2000, together with her family.
