Canada's National Ukrainian Festival

August 2, 2020
Location: Selo Ukraina-Ukrainian Flk Art (Dauphin, MB)

Canada’s National Ukrainian Festival in Dauphin originated at a meeting of the Dauphin Chamber of Commerce and from there a founding group was established in 1965. Board members were given a box of letterheads and five dollars worth of stamps to start. A constitution was drawn up and general guide lines were set forth. One important guideline was that the festival should reflect Ukrainian culture as it is in Canada, thus making the festival a national Ukrainian Canadian event The words “Canada” and “National” were to be included in the name of the festival. The logo was to be the Trident with the word “Bitaemo”. The festival was to become an annual three day event with the hope of establishing a Ukrainian Village some time in the near future.
