BelFestTexas is a not for profit Texas corporation. Our mission is to help communities of Belarusians and friends of Belarus living in Texas to become better connected, and to promote and strengthen Belarusian heritage and culture in Texas. A major part of our mission is to plan and organize Belarusian festival in Texas.
A few years back, Austin resident Natalia Yagur made a social media post saying that it would be fun for Belarusians of Austin and Houston to meet somewhere in between and get to know each other better. The idea was inspiring - soon, a talented enthusiastic team from both cities started working very hard to make it happen. Our 1st Fest took place deep in the heart of Texas Hill Country in March 2018. Since then, our community has been steadily growing and becoming more engaged. Thank you, Texas, for being our dearest home away from home!
