ABOUT UFEST

It's time to share our Ukrainian spirit in Canada's festival city!

Ukrainian culture has enriched Alberta's and Canada's landscape since the first immigrants from Ukraine arrived in the 1880s. We want to celebrate and share this rich culture with our community!

Our vision is to offer the largest celebration of Ukrainian spirit in Alberta - showcasing the best of Ukrainian arts and culture thereby, strengthening the multicultural fabric of this province and of Canada.

UFest Edmonton Ukrainian Festival will be a celebration of Ukrainian culture, food, music, visual arts, crafts and dance. This two-day event will bring together people of Ukrainian heritage, as well as attract audiences of many diverse cultures.

This free festival, set in a beautiful city park, will feature a main stage with ongoing musical and dance performers, beer gardens, Ukrainian food vendors, arts, crafts and merchandise vendors, displays, buskers, a coffee tent and more!

The festival program will showcase an enormous spectrum of talent, from those at developmental levels to professional performers. It will provide an opportunity for Alberta-based artistic schools and school groups to perform before large audiences and gain much needed experience.

Our primary goal is to share the richness of Ukrainian culture with all Edmontonians, Albertans and Canadians to strengthen our common interests and continue to build lasting relationships that recognize the value of the diversity that Canada offers and from which all of its citizens benefit.
