Macedonian Independence Day Potomac Riverboat Cruise

On Sunday, September 8, 2019, UMD hosted a scenic Potomac Riverboat Cruise on the Nightingale to celebrate 75 years of Macedonian Statehood and 28 years of Macedonia’s Independence. With beautiful weather and a view of the Washington, D.C. monuments, guests were treated to food, dancing, and watching the sunset over the Potomac River. Our forty attendees enjoyed Ajvar, Galichnik cheese, along with other Macedonian favorites, and danced the Macedonian Oro. UMD member Filip Jotevski on the tapan, accompanied by Cagla Giray on the tarabuka, entertained the guests all night. Thank you to everyone who was able to come out and spend a wonderful evening with UMD and celebrate Macedonia!
