  • Keeping Ukrainian Culture Alive

    Our festival includes a dance competition, various displays of Ukrainian arts and crafts including embroidery, pysanka, wheat weaving as well as information on tours to Ukraine. Each year we feature a special display or exhibit relating to Ukrainian culture and heritage.

    Of course, no festival is complete without food! A very busy kitchen runs throughout the day.

    We hope you will come visit and participate with us as we celebrate “keeping Ukrainian culture alive”!

    Entertainment

    If the dance competition isn’t entertaining enough by itself, there are musicians positioned throughout the Festival for your enjoyment.

    No country has a national dance as vibrant and energetic and fast-moving and colourful as do the Ukrainians.
    It’s called HOPAK!!
    The men: float knee-high above the floor, legs humming at hummingbird speed … arms outstretched like the
    wings of a soaring eagle!!
    The ladies: twirl in a blur, ribbons spiralling around beautiful faces!!
    The men: defying gravity with acrobatic leaps!!

    The ladies: hopping high to avoid calculated kicks from men propellering over the stage in an iconic half-
    circle!!

    Embroidered white shirts and blouses. Embroidered skirts. Multi-coloured ribbons. Red cossack pants. Red
    boots. Smiling faces … always smiling faces. HOPAK is the world’s happiest dance performance!!
    The 24th annual BC Ukrainian Cultural Festival will feature dance troupes from all corners of the province. And
    from the USA. Three hundred performers!!
    The Festival will offer musical entertainment throughout the venue, a kitchen providing tasty Ukrainian cuisine
    (perogies, cabbage rolls, etc.), displays of Ukrainian arts and crafts, vendors, a play area for the little ones, and
    more.
    The 2019 BC Ukrainian Cultural Festival will be held on Saturday, May 4, at the Heritage Park Educational and
    Cultural Complex in Mission, BC. Adjudicated dance performances will take place in the facility’s Clarke
    Foundation Theatre beginning at 9 AM. The official Opening Ceremony is scheduled for 10 AM.
    The ticket to get in: cheap like borscht!!
