“A Day in Ukraine” – an upcoming joint celebration of Ukrainian Independence Day and Canada 150 – hosted in Ottawa as part of Ottawa Welcomes the World

This year, embassies and high commissions mark their country’s national celebration with a series of world-class free events at Lansdowne Park. As part of this Ottawa 2017 Signature Event Series, each country celebrates their culture through food tasting, musical celebrations, artistic performances and more! 

As part of Ottawa Welcomes the World, the Embassy of Ukraine in Canada in partnership with the Ukrainian Youth Association (CYM) invites you to a “Day in Ukraine” – a joint celebration of Canada’s 150th and Ukraine’s Independence Day.

Infused with contemporary culture and music, the event will include exhibits from some of Ukraine’s leading innovators, including a virtual reality demonstration of the historic Chernobyl nuclear catastrophe. Also included are delicious traditional meals, a marketplace, and a portable escape room. Artistic performers, musicians, and dance ensembles are to join from both Canada and Ukraine.

The event will close with a free concert in Lansdowne Park featuring an up and coming electro-folk group by the name ONUKA, who was most recently profiled in the Eurovision song contest. 

Daylong fun for the young and the young at heart.

Come and get to know Ukraine!
