The Ukrainian Village in Chicago is one of the neighborhoods in the West Town Community Area. Mayor Jane Byrne
designated Ukrainian Village an official neighborhood on January 18, 1983 (the first such designation in the city’s history).
While in the midst of metropolitan hustle and bustle, the Ukrainian Village differentiates itself from the rest of the Chicago
neighborhoods because of its quiet tree-lined streets and welcoming nature of its residents.
This established Chicago community is home to nearly 100,000 Ukrainian – Americans, and a number of other ethnic
groups, as well as museums, shops, schools and numerous churches. It is known for its architectural splendor, historic
landmarks, and cultural events held throughout the year.
