In September 2022, something special happened in Dallas - the very first Moldovan festival called "Golden Autumn" took place! It was a day full of fun and excitement, where we all came together to celebrate the amazing Moldovan culture and traditions. Everyone was welcome, from Moldovan expats to curious locals who wanted to learn more about our beautiful country.
The festival was organized in collaboration with Sandu Sirbu of Noroc Events and featured the Tricolor Orchestra, who provided live music throughout the day. Guests were treated to a variety of traditional Moldovan dishes and drinks, including sarmale, mamaliga, and vin fiert. There were also activities for children, making it a family-friendly event that everyone could enjoy.
The importance of cultural events like this cannot be overstated, especially in small communities. It provides an opportunity for people to come together, learn about their heritage, and pass it on to the next generation. It is crucial that our children understand their roots and the traditions of their ancestors, and events like "Toamna de aur" are a great way to do that.
The festival was a huge success and showcased the vibrancy and diversity of Moldovan culture. It was heartwarming to see so many people of different backgrounds come together to celebrate and appreciate the Moldovan community. We hope that this is just the beginning and that there will be many more events like this in the future.
