After careful consideration, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Slavic Bazaar. The REES faculty feel that the “in-person-ness,” if you will, of the Slavic Bazaar is essential to experiencing, building, and celebrating our community. We hope that you will submit to and participate in the Slavic Bazaar in 2021.
