Celebrating the 26th Anniversary of
Ukraine's Independence

Exciting, spectacular, dazzling, breathtaking, exhilarating, spirited, soulful, enchanting, captivating, and intriguing – modest words which describe but by no means capture the full essence of Ukrainian folk art, song, music, and dance. From the rich color and deep symbolism of the delicate "pysanka" (Ukrainian Easter Egg) to the thunderous rhythm and power of "HOPAK" – the world's most exciting ethnic dance - and every brilliant "Kolomiyka" (polka) and soulful folk song in between, experience the 26th Annual Ukrainian Folk Festival.

"UNITED UKRAINE – UNITED WITH US"

A Resplendent Outdoor Summer Concert
Marking Ukraine's Independence, the Unity of her People, Their Struggle for Freedom and Dignity and Ukraine's Entry into the Family of Advanced Democratic Nations!

The artists (dance troupes, musicians, singers and ensembles that have performed in previous years) have created a dynamic and integrated collaborative program. The artistic unity underscores the theme: United Ukraine; United with Us.

Recent events in Ukraine, the Euromaidan Protest and Revolution of Dignity as well as the twilight struggle against unlawful Russian aggression, have forged a unified Ukrainian national identity, both in Ukraine and in the Diaspora. America's support of Ukraine's commitment to a self-determined democratic future - to life, liberty, freedom and justice – has created permanent bonds of friendship between the two nations. This year's festival honors these special relationships and developments.
