Ukrainian Folk Festival celebrates independence, benefits war victims


The Ukrainian Folk Festival 2022 will be held from noon to 8 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 28, at the Ukrainian American Sport Center – Tryzub (, County Line and Lower State roads, Horsham.

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, experience Ukrainian Folk Festival 2022, celebrating the 31st anniversary of the ancestral homeland’s independence.

Enjoy an outdoor summer stage concert and show (1:30 to 4:30 p.m.), live orchestra music (5 to 8 p.m.), traditional Ukrainian foods and baked goods, BBQ pit, standard picnic fare, vendors’ grove, Ukrainian arts and crafts displays and bazaar, cool refreshments, live reenactments from Ukrainian history and Ukrainian hospitality.

The event is open to the public, and admission is $15, with $5 of each paid admission donated to humanitarian relief of war victims in Ukraine. Children under 15 are admitted for free; parking is free.
