Set for Sunday, July 23, 2017, Joliet SerbFest will be held from noon to 9:00 p.m. at St. Joe’s Park, located at 700 S. Theodore Street in Joliet. The event will include a full menu of Serbian specialties, from barbecued lamb, grilled ćevapčići (Serbian sausage), pork shish-ka-bob, coleslaw and a large array of delectable desserts.

Event coordinators are looking forward to another successful event. "We brought back the classic Serbian picnic two years ago, and updated it to offer something for everyone," said Co-Chair Darlene Jovanovich, of Shorewood. It's a good mix of old-school with a fresh twist, and fun for every age," she added. Additional Co-Chairpersons for SerbFest include Vicki Petrich Dorsey and Bonnie Dauer. Event Committee members include: Rev. Nikolaj Kostur, Marty Johnston Seemann, Michelle Efatoski, Gayle Shimek, Alex Starcevich, Kathy Petkovich, David and Bosa Goodale, Tana Petrich, Nancy and Michael Cora, Jack and Chris Book, Millie Rowe, Danielle Serdar, and a host of hard-working helpers.
