Main Street Uniontown, PA on Sunday, March 26, 2023, from 12:00 noon – 4:00 PM.  This year’s event is being sponsored by GCU Lodge #81, local egg artists, and the St. John’s Ethnic Craft Club.


Various egg artists will be demonstrating, displaying, and selling their particular art which will include Eastern European pysanky, Polish drop-and-pull wax relief eggs, Hungarian-style eggs, onion-skin-dyed etched or scratch type goose eggs, vinegar-etched emu eggs, tie dyed eggs, wood burned eggs, and other collectable Tiffany-style eggs.

In addition to the egg artists, there will be an Egg Bazaar featuring vendors selling egg dyes, beeswax, tools, books, videos, and pysanky kits for sale.  Traditional items used in ethnic Easter baskets will also be available, such as embroidered covers, candles, lamb butter molds, egg wraps, parish cookbooks, and much more.  There will also be Easter crafts for sale made by the St. John’s Ethnic Craft Club.  Traditional Easter basket covers will also be on display. There will also be information for Easter basket blessing foods such as hrutka/sirets (Easter Cheese), braided long rolls,  horseradish/beets, and Paska Bread design making. 

An extensive parish bake sale will include long rolls (nut, apricot, poppyseed, cottage cheese), paska bread, decorated medovniki, small nut rolls, cookies, homemade candy, and many more delicious goodies.  A Lenten Luncheon Menu, including St. John’s “famous” pirohi, halushki, pagach pockets, pirohi pizza, and soups and more will be available for purchase.  

Visitors can try a hands-on workshop to learn how to decorate eggs.  There will be a Children’s Corner featuring egg-related crafts, storytelling, cookie decorating, and a jigsaw puzzle area. There will be many raffles and a Basket Raffle. Church tours will take place.
