UKRAINIAN DAYS FESTIVAL
T he Ukrainian Days Festival started as a means to bring the Chicago community together, and share Ukrainian food and culture to the Chicago Community. Ukraine, at the time, was oppressed by the Soviet Regime, the festival was a way to promote Ukraine's identity and struggle for independence. After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 the Festival became a celebration of Ukraine's Independence. The Festival coincides with Ukraine's Independence Day on August 24th.
T he Ukrainian Days Festival has helped promote Ukrainian culture by providing ethnic dance groups and musical groups as well as food and other vendors. The festival also supports local Chicago businesses in selling their products to the community.
