Twin Cities Ukrainian Heritage Festival
September 15, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 11:30 pm
Welcome to the 18th Annual Twin Cities Ukrainian Heritage Festival!
Bring family and friends to this FREE event! Get entertained with outstanding dance and music performances, enjoy delicious homemade Ukrainian food, and simply have fun!
Ukrainian Heritage Festival is world-class celebration of Ukrainian culture and its unique traditions in the Twin Cities. “All things Ukrainian” await you!
As in previous years, we will share the artistic and cultural achievements of our community on the local, national and world-wide levels, in folk dance, music, and other folk art.
Come waltz and polka with Ukrainian Village Band, a Ukrainian roots band, playing folk & modern music. One can always find people dancing wherever they play!
This festival has many attractions: cultural exhibit, craft vendors, children’s games, silent auction, beer garden with local and international beers, and more!!!
This year we are particularly proud to feature our local Cheremosh Ukrainian Dance Ensemble and Zirka Dance Ensemble from Canada. Our Cultural Exhibit will be presenting works of Ukrainian artist Daria Alyoshkina from Lviv, Ukraine. A graduate of the Lviv Academy of Arts and sculptor by training, Daria has been reviving the ancient Ukrainian craft of vytinanka, or paper cutting, for the past 10 years. Her works have been shown in Germany, France, Poland, South Korea and other countries. This will be her first exhibit in the U.S.
We welcome ALL with hearts full of joy!
