The Gardenton Ukrainian Festival returns today.


Clear your plates and don your embroidered shirts. The Gardenton Ukrainian Festival arrives today.

The festival takes over the Gardenton Park and Museum with food and entertainment all day.

The Ukrainian Catholic church service starts at 10:30 a.m. on the festival stage.

By 11:30 a.m., the kitchen will be serving up perogies and cream sauce, beet borscht, cabbage rolls, fried chicken, burgers and hotdogs.

Festival-goers can also snap up homemade apple and rhubarb pies, sauerkraut perishky and prune pampushky.

Once you’ve eaten your fill, roll on over to the stage because the show starts at 1 p.m. Witness the grace and athleticism of the Selo Ukrainian Dancers, Susydka Ukrainian Dancers and the Zoloto Ukrainian Dancers. The Starlites and Zenon Horobec will also take to the stage.

Kids can enjoy games and prizes, and the museum and one room schoolhouse will display artifacts and pioneer clothing.

At 7 p.m., polka the night away with music by the Starlites, and enjoy perogies and sausage. Dancing only stops at 1 a.m.

Kids get in free. For more information, visit
