    12th Annual EGG EGGSTRAVAGANZA

    The 12th EGG EGGSTRAVAGANZA will be held at the St. John the Baptist Byzantine Catholic Church Social Hall 201 E. Main Street Uniontown, PA, on Sunday, April 2, 2017 from Noon – 5PM.

    This year, the Eggstravaganza is being sponsored by GCU Lodge #81, local egg artists, and the St. John’s Ethnic Craft Club.

    About twenty-five or more egg artists will be demonstrating, displaying, and selling their particular art which will include Eastern European pysanky, Polish drop-and-pull wax relief eggs, Hungarian-style eggs, onion-skin-dyed etched or scratch type goose eggs, vinegar-etched emu eggs, tie dyed eggs, wood burned eggs, and other collectable Tiffany-style eggs.

    In addition to the egg artists, there will be an Egg Bazaar featuring egg dyes, beeswax, tools, books, videos, and pysanky kits for sale. Traditional items used in ethnic Easter baskets will also be available, such as embroidered covers, candles, lamb butter molds, egg wraps, parish cookbooks, and much more. There will also be Easter crafts for sale made by the St. John’s Ethnic Craft Club. Traditional Easter basket covers will also be on display. There will also be information for Easter basket blessing foods such as hrutka/sirets (Easter Cheese), horseradish/beets, braided long rolls, and Paska Bread design making.

    A parish bake sale will include long rolls (nut, apricot, poppyseed, cottage cheese), paska bread, decorated medovniki, small nut rolls, cookies, homemade candy, and many more delicious goodies.

    Visitors can try a hands-on workshop to learn how to decorate eggs. There will be a Children’s Corner featuring egg-related crafts, storytelling, cookie decorating, and a jigsaw puzzle area. A Raffle and Basket Raffle will also take place.

    A Lenten Luncheon Menu, including St. John’s “famous” pirohi, halushki, pagach, pirohi pizza, and soups and more will be available for purchase. There is no admission fee. Door prizes will be awarded throughout the day. Handicapped accessible.
