A Resplendent Outdoor Summer Concert

Marking Ukraine’s Independence, the Unity of her People, Their Struggle for Freedom & Dignity & Ukraine’s Entry into the Family of Advanced Democratic Nations!

The artists (dance troupes, musicians, singers and ensembles that have performed in previous years) have created a dynamic and integrated collaborative program. The artistic unity underscores the theme: “United Ukraine; United with Us”.

Recent events in Ukraine, the Euromaidan Protest and Revolution of Dignity as well as the twilight struggle against unlawful Russian aggression, have forged a unified Ukrainian national identity, both in Ukraine and in the Diaspora. America’s support of Ukraine’s commitment to a self-determined democratic future - to life, liberty, freedom and justice – has created permanent bonds of friendship between the two nations. This year’s festival honors these special relationships and developments.

Voloshky Ukrainian Dance Ensemble

Vox Ethnika Orchestra

Violinist Innesa Tymochko Dekajlo

Iskra Ukrainian Dance Ensemble

The Ukrainian League is assisting with the initiative to collect non-perishable foods (e.g. canned soup, chili, canned tuna, canned beans, canned veggies, canned fruits, canned meats, pasta, rice, cereal, buckwheat, etc.). Any type of canned, non-fragile item that can withstand shipping and transportation by sea will do.

The collection bin is located in the bar downstairs, at the entrance.

This aid will be delivered to the volunteers in Kyiv, who are working to provide for soldiers in 92nd, 80th, and 79th battalion brigades, as well as The Right Sector (Pravyi Sektor).

Shipping will be done via Ukraine Express at a discounted rate.

Please do not hesitate to contact the League with any questions.

In addition to canned food, other items needed are:
550 Military Paracord Rope (for survival bracelets)


Warm Camo clothing

While these items are optional - the primary focus is the food drive - they are also important and necessary in the field. If you were inclined to purchase paracord rope, following are some of the links to give an idea of what is needed:

1000 feet rope (will make 60-75 survival bracelets)

300 feet rope (will make 18-21 bracelets)
