Ukrainian Festival offers old world culture and cuisine

Posted

UTICA — After a two-year absence due to the pandemic, Utica’s popular annual Ukrainian Festival returns from noon to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Oct. 21 and 22 at the Ukrainian Hall, 6 Cottage Place.

This year’s event is special thanks to all the friends and neighbors who came forward with generous donations and food purchases that helped buy much-needed medical equipment and supplies for the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.

The festival will feature the popular Ukrainian dance group Yunist from New York City; well- known violinist Vasyl Popadiuk, who has performed all over the world; singers Nazar Yavoriv and Maria Pavlyshyn and Melody Lane, a popular Ukrainian band from Rochester. Traditional Ukrainian food will be available for eat-in and also takeout.

Vendors with Ukrainian arts, crafts and traditional clothing will be on hand. Raffles and gift baskets will also be available. All festival proceeds will be used for humanitarian and medical needs for the people of Ukraine.
