    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 29th ANNUAL UKRAINIAN FOLK FESTIVAL, celebrating the 29th anniversary of our ancestral homeland’s independence. Enjoy an outdoor summer stage concert and show (1:30 to 4:30 PM), a public social dance (4:30 – 8:00 PM), homemade Ukrainian foods and baked goods, BBQ pit, standard picnic fare, kid’s fun area, vendors’ grove, Ukrainian arts and crafts displays and bazaar, cool refreshments,  live reenactments from Ukrainian history and Ukrainian hospitality.
     
    “CELEBRATE LIBERTY AND UNITY”
    A Resplendent Outdoor Summer Concert (1:30 to 4:30 pm)
    Marking Ukraine’s Independence, the Unity of her People, Their Struggle for Freedom, Prosperity & Dignity
