We’re dedicated to educating the general public about Bulgarian and Macedonian history and culture.
Research Learning Center
The BMNECC houses thousands of books, periodicals, costumes, audio-visual materials, and precious museum artifacts. These collections constitute a valuable resource for scholars, educators, and the general public.
Children’s Cultural Programs
Throughout the year the experienced instructors of our Bulgarian Children’s School provide classes in Bulgarian language, dance, history, geography, music and craft-making for children of all ages.
Our Adult Culture Program offers Bulgarian language and folk dance instruction to adults.
Special Cultural Events
We regularly mount art and informational exhibits, screen films, and host lectures.
We maintain a busy schedule of cultural programming. Our Otets Paissii folk ensemble perpetuates Bulgaria’s rich music and dance tradition by performing regularly at local and regional events, such as the Pittsburgh Folk Festival. We also sponsor performances by visiting guest artists, such as renowned opera singers, musicians and choreographers.
