Always the first weekend in November, Mugė is an opportunity for full immersion in Lithuanian culture and tradition. By far, it is our largest and most widely attended fundraiser of the year.

Celebrate Lithuanian Arts and Culture!

Lithuanian Folk Dancers

Hungry for the world’s best potato pancakes? Thirsty for Švyturys or Kalnapilis? Fond of amber jewelry? Crazy about Lithuanian music and dance? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then the 39th Annual Mugė Lithuanian Festival on Saturday, November 7th and Sunday, November 8th in Philadelphia is for you!

Both days are packed with fun for the entire family! From live music and folk dance performances to artisan jewelry and crafts to children’s activities and authentic Lithuanian comfort food, this Lithuanian fair is a popular crowd pleaser every year. Visit our newly renovated Cultural Center to discover Lithuanian heritage, find your ancestors’ birthplace on our map, and get inspired to learn more. Mugė is a fabulous opportunity for full immersion in Lithuanian culture and tradition.

Listen to live music, watch folk dance performances, and when you get the urge, sing and dance along! We’ll have a concert Saturday night downstairs in the Club Room and will announce those details soon.

Savor the delectable old world dishes our mothers and grandmothers taught us to prepare. We proudly serve a full menu of our best Lithuanian recipes: balandėliai (stuffed cabbage), blynai (potato pancakes), kugelis (potato pudding), poppy seed rolls, honey cakes, and so many more delicious treats.

Our bars are stocked with a wide variety of cold imported Lithuanian beers. Plus, we offer a selection of popular wines and your favorite mixed drinks.
