Houston headlines Mishka Festival in West Hollywood
The city of West Hollywood annually celebrates the rich traditions brought to the United States by Russian-speaking immigrants from the former Soviet Union. Each year, the city recognizes Russian-speaking Community Cultural Heritage Month to embrace the diverse identities and cultural history of Russian-speaking community members whose origins span wide-ranging territories with varied religious and social traditions.
On Sunday, May 21, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., the city and its Russian-speaking Advisory Board will host the 22nd Annual WeHo Mishka Festival at Plummer Park, located at 7377 Santa Monica Blvd. The event will embrace the opportunity to explore and share the deep historical elements of Russian culture. Grammy-winning Motown Legend Thelma Houston will perform as part of a gala concert from 5 to 7 p.m. The day will also feature the 17th Annual Russian-speaking Community Awards presentation and a reception for the Art of Wellness exhibition currently showing in Long Hall.
