This year's event takes place from noon to 10 p.m. The cuisine is indigenous to the Balkan area of ancient Macedonia, which is now encompassed by the Republic of Macedonia, and portions of Bulgaria, Greece, Albania, Kosovo, and Serbia.
Dishes include two versions of the Macedonian kebob, a spicy pork sausage and a skinless pork and beef sausage, as well as sarma, a type of stuffed cabbage.
