A dazzling festival of Ukrainian folk music, dance, foods and arts and crafts


Horsham, Pa.—Sunday, August 28, 12:00 – 8:00 PM. The Ukrainian Folk Festival 2022 will be held at the Ukrainian American Sport Center -- Tryzub (, County Line and Lower State Roads, Horsham, PA.

$5.00 of each Paid Admission will be Donated to Humanitarian Relief of War Victims in Ukraine.

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, experience the UKRAINIAN FOLK FESTIVAL 2022, celebrating the 31st anniversary of our ancestral homeland’s independence. Enjoy an outdoor summer stage concert and show (1:30 to 4:30 PM), live orchestra music (4:30  – 8:00 PM), traditional Ukrainian foods and baked goods, BBQ pit, standard picnic fare, vendors’ grove, Ukrainian arts and crafts displays and bazaar, cool refreshments,  live reenactments from Ukrainian history and Ukrainian hospitality.
