The Toronto Ukrainian Festival (formerly the Bloor West Village Ukrainian Festival) is comming back to Bloor West Village (it was “away” last year at Toronto’s waterfront Harbourfront Centre) and will be on September 12 – 14, 2008.
This is the 12th year of the Largest Ukrainian festival in North America.
Rock musician (and Winnipeger) Randy Bachman (of Guess Who, Bachman-Turner Overdrive fame) has been appointed the 2008 Festival Parade Marshal.
Come and join the fun, bring the family (take the TTC), check out the music, dancing, and food (you don’t have to be Ukrainian), but save some peroigies for me.
Here’s a set of photo’s of 2006 Bloor West Village Ukrainian Festival, or enjoy the slide show below :

I live right by Bloor West Village! And I’m going down to the Ukranian festival as well,
(Not to mention the Junction Arts Festival that’s happening right now and the upcoming Polish Festival at Roncesvalles also!)
Maybe I’ll see you down there.
