Discover Ukrainian culture in Canada and share the Ukrainian spirit at North America’s largest Ukrainian Street Festival. This is your opportunity to experience Ukrainian culture and hospitality at its best. Enjoy non-stop entertainment with Ukrainian performers from the Greater Toronto Area, Canada, the USA and Ukraine, including dancers, vocalists, musicians and a special youth segment. Two stages will feature non-stop entertainment. And if you wish – join the dancing at the evening zabava/street dance on Friday and Saturday.

Vendor kiosks will offer delicious, authentic Ukrainian food and beverages, beautiful crafts and collectibles. Cultural pavilions will feature interactive cultural activities and displays of historical and contemporary interest. Enjoy shopping at the sidewalk sale by local Bloor West Village shops and businesses. Take in the colourful parade on Saturday morning at 11 a.m., the film festival, the art exhibit, and have fun at the midway.
