The Orthodox Church of St. Matthew moved into its permanent home in the Kings Contrivance Interfaith Center of Columbia, MD in February 2007.
The parish community enjoys a diverse representation of ethnic backgrounds. To share its culture with the surrounding community, the parish hosted its first Multi-Cultural Festival in October 2008. More than 4,000 people came to experience the entertainment, home-made ethnic foods, crafts, and children’s area. The event was declared to be just what had been missing from Columbia.
Please look for us each year the first weekend in October as we strive to top the previous year’s festivities!
Children’s Activity Area
This year, the children’s area will feature an inflatable slide.
While you are at the festival, make sure to check out our children’s menu, featuring hot dogs and french fries.
