Celebrate 125 years of Ukrainian Culture with Babas and Borshch

Get ready to for one great zabava (that's Ukrainian for party).
The 4th Annual Baba's and Borshch Ukrainian Festival is coming up on August 20 and 21 from Andrew, Alberta.  While many of the traditional events and activities return, this year has special significance as they celebrate 125 years since the first Ukrainian immigrants landed on Canadian soil.
If you're Ukrainian, or just feel like being one, you won't want to miss this amazing event featuring food, culture, history, and great entertainment.
Look forward to:
- Learning Ukrainian dance with the MY Ukrainian Dance Academy
- Listen to a history through song by the Zemila Vocal Trio
- Eat potato pancakes at Baba's Brunch
- Try some of the finest Borshch in the province during the Borshch cook off
- Hang out with the celebrity herself, the always fun loving, story telling Baba Magda.
Most importantly, don't miss the Zabava 2016, which is a bound to have you dancing and singing up a storm.  A delicious meal will be provided, followed by performances from the Verkhovyna Ensemble (which feature the Dunai Dancers and the Verkhovyna Choir). Plus, polka dance band Trembita is back by popular demand.
The majority of this two day event is free, but there are some events and elements that may require money. Tickets for the Zabava are $50 or $60 at the door. For a full list of activities, events, directions and prices go to
