Preserving Our History
for the Future

Since 1922, the Macedonian Patriotic Organization’s mission has focused on preserving Macedonian history and culture by creating a sense of community here in the U.S. and Canada. Our common heritage is what bonds us and by coming together as part of the MPO community, we ensure our history lives on for future generations. We invite you to learn about our history and culture and encourage you to become an active member of our Macedonian community.

Day of discovery

The MPO cordially invites everyone to our Day of Discovery on May 18, 2024 in Boardman, Ohio (near Youngstown).  Join us for  Cultural Workshops, Essay Competition, Scholarship Award, Buffet, and Vecherinka Dance!

Over the course of many decades, the Day of Discovery event has become a cherished MPO tradition and an amazing opportunity to learn more about our Macedonian customs, history, and traditions.

Our History

This kingdom, Macedon, became a great power under the leadership of Philip II and his son, Alexander the Great.  The Macedonians of this era were likely Illyrians, an ancient people who were probably the distant ancestors of the present-day Albanians.  By 148 B.C., Macedonia was conquered by the Roman Empire and became a Roman province.
