Enjoy an outdoor summer stage concert and show (1:30 to 4:30 PM), a public social dance (4:30 – 8:00 PM), homemade Ukrainian foods and baked goods, BBQ pit, standard picnic fare, kid’s fun area, vendors grove, Ukrainian arts and crafts displays and bazaar, cool refreshments, Live Reenactments from Ukrainian history and Ukrainian hospitality.
