The Ukrainian Village Fest began in 2002 as a neighborhood festival with the concept of
offering a world-class celebration of Ukrainian spirit to the Chicago community while
showcasing the best of Ukrainian and other ethnic arts and culture.

From the beginning it has been a huge success, drawing crowds from all neighboring and
ethnic communities

Having grown in size by 20% every year, this 2 day festival is expected to have
over 10,000 in attendance in 2014.

The Ukrainian Village Fest presents a terrific opportunity for exposure to a variety of
Chicago’s ethnic markets, as well as the Northwest side neighborhoods of Chicago by:
> Providing all-day entertainment for the entire family
> Introducing Eastern European culture to the general American public
> Creating an energetic atmosphere in the Ukrainian Village
This year, The Fest is celebrating its 13th year and has become a tradition in the
Ukrainian Village and for our neighboring communities;
