Ukrainian pavilion at Winnipeg’s Folklorama

From the Winnipeg Sun:

Non-stop Ukrainian food and entertainment is available at the Ukraine-Kyiv pavilion at Maples Collegiate all week.

The pavilion has been around since the beginning of Folklorama but keeps every year fresh as the show features new dancers and live bands each night.

The entertainment from the show extends to a display room which features “a Ukrainian musical journey,” said Labay.

Popular Ukrainian instruments like the trembita are gathered in the room with volunteers who are keen on the music’s history.

On the main stage, performances led up to a finale from one of the many young and talented Ukrainian dance groups.

Folklorama goes from August 3 – 18. You can also watch video from the event. Click ‘continue reading’ for showtimes and directions.
