About the workshop

Nadia will first charm us with stories about Bulgaria’s history, traditions, and culture. Then we’ll hear about Bulgarian immigration to this area, be introduced to local Bulgarian organizations and some of their celebrations, and finally we will find out the best ways to enjoy all things Bulgarian in the Boston area – including a virtual tour of Six Star Market in Woburn. We might even learn a word or two in Bulgarian!
