If you were interested in trying food and listening and dancing to music of another culture than Serb Fest was your answer. The event was held as part of the 103rd anniversary of Saints Peter and Paul Serbian Orthodox Church in South Bend.

The festival offered authentic Serbian cuisine including a wide selection of desserts. The event also featured two live bands. Besides the food and music, there were games and rides available for children. The one day celebration ran seven hours long.

Christiaan Corthier is affiliated with Saints Paul & Peter Serbian Orthodox Church and handles their communication. "Just as St. Patrick's Day is your day to be Irish, and Dyngus Day is your Day to be Polish, well Serb Fest is your day to be a Serb for the day,” Corthier said. “It gives us the opportunity to invite the Michiana community to be apart of our family."

Corthier says with the help of social media, Serb Fest has grown and the Michiana community has become much more aware of the celebration.

The event was free but people were asked to make a donation for parking. All the money collected there will be given to the Northern Indiana Food Bank.
