It’s Carassauga time 2008!

Every May the city of Mississauga (next to Toronto), Ontario puts on a weekend-long multicultural festival celebrating Canada’s diversity:  Carassauga. This year Ukraine does not have its own pavilion as it did in years prior but will still be participating in the International Pavilion with culinary kiosks and performances by the Barvinok School of Ukrainian Dance:

  • Friday, May 23: 8:10 PM-8:30 PM & 10:00 PM-10:30 PM
  • Saturday, May 24: 5:40 PM-6:10 PM & 7:40 PM-8:10 PM
  • Sunday, May 25: 1:00 PM-1:30 PM & 3:20 PM-3:50 PM


Tomken Arena
4495 Tomken Rd.
Mississauga L4W 1J9
Telephone: 905.615.4620
(South of Eglinton Ave. on Tomken Road and north of Eastgate Pkwy.)

Tickets are only $10 ($8 for children) and are available at the door.

Here are some pictures from last year’s event (although the thumbnails don’t work, clicking on them does bring up full pictures) and some more.  Also here’s a Kontakt broadcast from the 2005 Pavillion.

  1. Carassauga 2008 was even better. I would be happy to post some photos here (of the Ukranian dancers), but I don’t know how to do so.
