Seasonal Special Happenings

Cleveland Kurentovanje

When: Mon., Feb. 20 2017

They’ve been hosting Kurentovanje festivals in Slovenia since 1960, but the fun only made its way to Cleveland five years ago. The 10-day pre-Lenten festival, which has spread throughout Eastern Europe and beyond, famously features elaborately costumed Kurents, who endeavor to scare off winter and help to usher in spring. Cleveland Kurentovanje (koo-rahn-toh-VAHN-yay), held annually since 2013 in the St. Clair-Superior neighborhood, is expanding its duration and number of offerings this year. Originally a one-day affair with parade, food and entertainment, this year’s festivities will extend to nearly a full week of events, meals, parties, exhibits and, ultimately, the parade. The events begin tonight at 6:30 with a special joint edition of Dinner in the Dark and CLE Dinner Club. Tickets are $86.99. (Douglas Trattner)
