A dazzling festival of Ukrainian folk music, dance, foods and arts and crafts. Sunday, August 25, 2012 at 12:00 noon. The 22nd Annual Ukrainian Folk Festival, will be held at the Ukrainian American Sport Center – Tryzub, County Line and Lower State Roads, Horsham, PA. The general public is invited to attend.
Exciting, spectacular, dazzling, breathtaking, exhilarating, spirited, soulful, enchanting, captivating, and intriguing – modest words which describe but by no means capture the essence of Ukrainian folk art, music, and dance. From the rich color and deep symbolism of the delicate “pysanka” (Ukrainian Easter Egg) to the thunderous, power, rhythm and strength of “HOPAK” – the world’s most exciting ethnic dance, and every brilliant “Kolomiyka” (polka) and soulful folk song in between, we invite you to experience the TWENTY- SECOND ANNUAL UKRAINIAN FOLK FESTIVAL, celebrating the anniversary of our ancestral homeland’s independence. Enjoy a festival stage show, a public social dance, Ukrainian foods and baked goods, BBQ pit, kid’s fun area, and Ukrainian hospitality.
