ABOUT THE CALGARY UKRAINIAN FESTIVAL:

The Calgary Ukrainian Festival was founded in 2009 by a group of passionate Ukrainians wanting to share their love of everything Ukrainian to the community of Calgary and area. The idea came to Chris Gnyra & Michael Ilnycky. They were joined by other passionate Ukrainian Community members, and have worked together, volunteering, to coordinate every aspect of our festival. As part of Calgary’s rich multicultural mosaic, our goal at the Calgary Ukrainian Festival is to provide Calgarians with vibrant and colourful memories of traditional Ukrainian song and dance, an appreciation for its arts and costumes, and a taste for its delicious cuisine! We host our festival in the spirit of community and camaraderie, and with deep respect to the many Ukrainian immigrants who settled across Canada more than 125 years ago. We honour their memory by preserving our cultural heritage and continuing the many customs and traditions that have been passed down from one generation to the next. May their hard work, dreams, aspirations and determination to start a better life for their families in Canada always be remembered. Even though we are spread throughout the world, we have found ways to teach our culture and traditions to our children and hold our community together.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT is to provide an informative and entertaining festival that celebrates all aspects of our unique and rich Ukrainian heritage.

OUR VISION STATEMENT is to raise the profile of Calgary’s Ukrainian Community through a professional and inclusive annual event that showcases Ukrainian arts, cuisine, entertainment and culture while highlighting true Ukrainian hospitality.
