The Gardenton Ukrainian Festival
The Gardenton Festival is a time for Ukrainians to come together in celebration of their culture. It’s also a time to meet new friends, relive memories and bust out your dance moves!
Saturday, July 15 was a smashing success. The weather held out for an outdoor stage show with four amazing dance groups to entertain the crowd with dances from different regions of Ukraine. There were also local musicians, kid’s activities, beer gardens, and amazing homemade Ukrainian cuisine!
In the evening, locals and dancers gathered for a Zabava (Ukrainian dance party) to culminate the day – waltzes, two-steps and hot polkas were brought to you by the Starlites.
The whole day was charged with cultural pride and showcased a large range of talent. Be sure to make it out next year!
