Eureka’s 16th annual Ethnic Food and Dance Festival will take place on Saturday, October 7th, between noon and 4 pm, as usual, on the grounds of St Innocent’s Orthodox Church, located at 939 F Street, Eureka. This popular “Taste of Orthodoxy” annual event will once again feature the local ethnic band Chubritza together with a variety of Central European and Greek food booths. Our famous “4th of July gyro booth” will make one last appearance until next year. The Russian tea room will serve international delicacies such as Swiss apple pie and traditional lemon pound cake. The choir will offer hourly Byzantine chant performances during guided tours of this amazing historic temple (the oldest standing church in Eureka, built in 1883). The entire community is invited to attend this festival, and admission is free.
The combination of Northern California native Molly Tuttle's exceptional guitar playing, heartfelt songwriting, and the cohesive sound of her band Golden Highway have garnered critical acclaim and a dedicated fanbase. Together, they create a musical experience that blends traditional roots music with a contemporary sensibility, appealing to a wide range of listeners.“Among the most brilliant guitarists in this new generation is Molly Tuttle, who seems as effortlessly conversant when flatpicking as when playing in the clawhammer style, and who is equally gifted as a singer-songwriter,” — Premier Guitar
