In response to the ongoing pandemic, Ukrainian Canadian Congress Alberta Provincial Council has reshaped our Ukrainian Day festival into a week-long celebration online!
There will be an entire week of online festivities starting on August 16th and ending on August 24th День Незалежності (Ukrainian Independence Day). We will be providing links for the events on our facebook page, and supplementary information will be provided on our website www.uccab.ca. Use the hashtag #UADays2020 when posting about the festival!
The festival will be split into 5 distinct series:
