The 22nd Annual Ukrainian Folk Festival will be held at the Ukrainian American Sport Center on Sunday, August 25. Exciting, spectacular, dazzling, breathtaking, exhilarating, spirited, soulful, enchanting, captivating, and intriguing – modest words which describe but by no means capture the essence of Ukrainian folk art, music, and dance.

From the rich color and deep symbolism of the delicate “pysanka” (Ukrainian Easter Egg) to the thunderous, power, rhythm and strength of “HOPAK” – the world’s most exciting ethnic dance, and every brilliant “Kolomiyka” (polka) and soulful folk song in between, experience the 22nd Annual Ukrainian Folk Festival, celebrating the anniversary of Ukraine's ancestral homeland’s independence. Enjoy a gala outdoor stage concert and show, a public social dance, homemade Ukrainian foods and baked goods, BBQ pit, kid’s fun area, and Ukrainian hospitality.

Enjoy Voloshky Ukrainian Dance Ensemble; Iskra Ukrainian Dance Ensemble; Violinist Innesa Tymochko Dekajlo; and The Voxethnika Band. A Ukrainian Public Social Dance (Zabava) to live Ukrainian polka, ballroom, traditional and modern music by the The Voxethnika Band will follow the stage concert and show. Ukrainian ethnic foods, baked goods, standard picnic fare and cool refreshments will be plentiful. Also, enjoy a children’s fun area and a folk arts and crafts bazaar.
