You don’t have to be Ukrainian to love perogies and borscht! Dauphin’s rich Ukrainian heritage comes alive to share it with the world every August long weekend at Selo Ukraina, as it hosts Canada’s National Ukrainian Festival. It celebrated its 45th anniversary in 2010 and keeps people coming back with its showcase of Ukrainian culture: food, dance, music, ceremonies, arts, crafts, and of course, the people! The Selo Ukrainia site also boasts a Ukrainian Heritage Village, Memorial Park, and the Ukrainian Musicians Hall of Fame. Dauphin’s own Canada’s National Riding & Dancing Cossacks and Zirka Ukrainian Dance Ensemble are perennial favorites, but world famous Shumka Dancers and European superstars Ruslana and Haydamaky have also taken to the stage in recent years. If you can’t make it to the festival, be sure to stop at Canada’s National Ukrainian Festival Boutique! Here you will find handmade jewelry, tradition Ukrainian gifts, craft supplies and more, year round.
