Kick up your heels until the wee hours at the Friday and Saturday dances, witness the spectacle of an impromptu Hopak. Visit the cultural handicrafts exhibits and marvel at the intricate patterns of embroidery and pysanky.

Relax amid the hustle and bustle and listen to local bands, explore family history at the Trace you Ukrainian Roots Display. Watch a blacksmith draw a red hot iron from the fire and masterfully shape-it, part of our pioneer demonstrations.
