The vibrant and cultural city of Boston is eagerly anticipating the return of the Boston Annual Ukrainian Festival. This remarkable event, organized by Sky Philanthropy, will captivate attendees with a celebration of Ukrainian culture, performances, and a commitment to philanthropic endeavors. The festival is set to take place on August 26, 2023, from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Boston University’s Campus (270 Bay State Rd.).

Drawing inspiration from last year’s resounding success, which united over 3,000 people from diverse communities and over 30 organizations, the Boston Annual Ukrainian Festival promises an unforgettable experience. This year’s festival will showcase activities and performances that encompass the essence of Ukrainian music, dance, food, visual arts, and traditions. Attendees can look forward to a day filled with history, rich culture and opportunities to contribute to meaningful causes.

At the heart of the Boston Annual Ukrainian Festival lies Sky Philanthropy, the festival’s dedicated organizer. Over the past year, Sky Philanthropy has made a substantial impact, donating over 60,000 lbs. of medical supplies, generators, autonomous lights, countless first aid kits to soldiers, school supplies to children, and even facilitating the acquisition of a cargo truck with the support of a Swedish parliament member. The remarkable acts of generosity of many volunteers involved in the organization of the festival highlight the commitment to making a difference in the lives of those in need.

Extraordinary talent is set to perform at the Boston Ukrainian Festival in 2023. One of the best Ukrainian Dance Ensembles in the United States, The Yunist Dance Ensemble, will showcase a wide variety of dances and costumes from different regions of Ukraine. Eurovision 2023 special guest and 2010 Eurovision finalist representing Ukraine, Alyosha, will perform original songs. Additionally, the Ukrainian Festival Chorus, conducted by Jorge Soto will bring together a diverse community of singers to welcome festival goers with the Ukrainian National Anthem. Boston University, Harvard University and special guests will join in panel discussions, educating the public about Ukraine’s history and current events. 

The Boston Annual Ukrainian Festival is an event that transcends borders, inviting individuals from all communities to celebrate the culture, advocate for freedom and democracy, and support the population in Ukraine and Ukrainian refugees in the US.
