Celebrate the enduring, vibrant culture of a people that fights for freedom!

The 27th Annual Ukrainian Folk Festival & Summer Concert 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, song 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 the 27th ANNUAL UKRAINIAN FOLK FESTIVAL, celebrating the 27th anniversary of our ancestral homeland’s independence.

Enjoy an outdoor summer stage concert and show (1:30 to 4:30 PM), a public social dance (4:30 – 8:00 PM), homemade Ukrainian foods and baked goods, BBQ pit, standard picnic fare, kid’s fun area, vendors grove, arts and crafts displays and bazaar, cool refreshments, live reenactments from Ukrainian history and Ukrainian hospitality.

“A CELEBRATION OF LIBERTY AND UNITY”: A Resplendent Outdoor Summer Concert (1:30 to 4:30 pm)
Marking Ukraine’s Independence, the Unity of her People, and their Struggle for Freedom, Prosperity and Dignity
