Canadian National Ukrainian Festival CNUF 2010 in Dauphin, Manitoba this weekend!

This weekend July 30, July 31 & August 1 is the 45th annual Canadian National Ukrainian Festival (CNUF) in Dauphin, Manitoba.

Immerse yourself in the rich culture of many proud Ukrainian Canadians at Canada’s National Ukrainian Festival, a lively celebration of dance, music, food and family. Home of the only 11,000-seat, hillside amphitheatre in Canada, CNUF features many high-energy main stage shows, as well as an exciting lineup of entertainment on two additional open air stages.

Dance the weekend away at the nightly zabavas or parties, thrown in honour of CNUF’s guests. Experience traditional Ukrainian hospitality and be part of a Ukrainian wedding celebration. Sample delicious, authentic Ukrainian cuisine or watch amateur talent competitions.

You will literally see and feel the past come alive by touring the heritage village with its clay bake ovens and costumed interpreters.

Children and their parents will enjoy the children’s festival featuring special performers, crafts, games and workshops geared to different age groups.
