Živeli! Drinking and dancing, cevapcici and pljeskavica – it’s the annual Serb Fest! Hosted on the site of the still-under-construction St. Petka’s Orthodox Church, the festival promises three days to celebrate Serbian music, cuisine and culture. Expect fare to include cheesy gibanica cakes, pecenje spit roasts and the homemade sweets of the ladies of St. Petka’s Parish. (As per Orthodox tradition, fish takes the place of other meats on Fridays.) Also hailing from the parish is the Serbian Crown Dance Ensemble; you can catch them, along with all of the show’s other performers, on all three days of Serb Fest.

6-11 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Saturday, 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Sunday | St. Petka Serbian Orthodox Church, 1990 Lake Emma Road, Longwood | 407-831-7372 | serb-fest.com | free
