About this Festival

In 1918, Romanians living across all three historic Principalities made a bold call for unity and proclaimed Romania a modern, democratic, and sovereign nation.  Those were the times when United States President Woodrow Wilson declared his Fourteen Points, which laid out a vision of the world free from tyranny and oppression.  That vision inspired the Romanian’s call for independence and freedom and guided them through a future of hope and dignity.  Those Fourteen Points and the strong mobilization of the Romanian-American communities across the United States not only had a dramatic impact on Romania’s history, but they also cemented a long lasting friendship between Romania and the United States.

This year, 100 years later, we have the unique privilege to honor those who dreamed together, Romanians and Americans, of a just and peaceful world, and to memorialize their friendship.

Despre Festival

In 1918 Romanii care au trait in cele trei provincii cu mare curaj au proclamat Romania, o natiune suverana, moderna si democratica. In acele timpuri Presedintele Statelor Unite ale Americii, Woodrow Wilson declara cele 14 puncte, care au pus bazele unei noi viziuni pentru a lume libera, eliberata de tiranie si opresiune. Acea viziune a inspirat decizia Romanilor pentru independenta si libertate precum ia pus pe un nou drum cu speranta si demnitate. Cele 14 puncte si dorinta puternica de mobilizare a comunitatilor Romano-Americane din Statele Unite au avut atat un impact dramatic asupra istoriei Romaniei precum a si ajutat la punerea bazelor unei relatii de prietenie intre Romania si Statele Unite ale Americii.

 Anul acesta, 100 de ani mai tarziu, avem unicul privilegiu de a onora pe cei care au visat impreuna, Romani si Americani, pentru o lume dreapta, cu pace pentru toti, precum a comemora prietenia lor.
