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, arts and crafts displays and bazaar, cool refreshments,  Live Reenactments from Ukrainian history and Ukrainian hospitality.


A Resplendent Outdoor Summer Concert

Marking Ukraine’s Independence, the Unity of her People, Their Struggle for Freedom & Dignity & 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.
