Horsham, Pa.—Sunday, August 24, 12:00 – 8:00 PM. The 23rd Annual Ukrainian Folk Festival will be held at the Ukrainian American Sport Center — Tryzub (www.tryzub.org) , County Line and Lower State Roads, Horsham, PA.

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-THIRD ANNUAL UKRAINIAN FOLK FESTIVAL, celebrating the anniversary of our ancestral homeland’s independence. Enjoy a gala outdoor stage concert and show, a public social dance, homemade Ukrainian foods and baked goods, BBQ pit, kid’s fun area, and Ukrainian hospitality.

Enjoy VOLOSHKY UKRAINIAN DANCE ENSEMBLE (Jenkintown, PA) (www.voloshky.com); ISKRA UKRAINIAN DANCE ENSEMBLE (Whippany, NJ) (Facebook); Violinist INNESA TYMOCHKO DEKAJLO (Lviv, Ukraine) (www.innesa.com); THE SPIV-Zhyttya (Living.inSONG) CHOIR (DC); and THE VOX ETHNIKA BAND (New York City); (www.voxethnika.com). A Ukrainian Public Social Dance (Zabava) to live Ukrainian polka, ballroom, traditional and modern music by the THE VOX ETHNIKA BAND will follow the stage concert and show. Ukrainian ethnic foods, baked goods, standard picnic fare and cool refreshments will be plentiful. Also, enjoy a children’s fun area and a folk arts and crafts bazaar.
