The Baltimore Ukrainian Festival Committee is a non-profit tax-exempt group under UCCA - Ukrainian Congress Committee of America established September 1976.
The Baltimore Ukrainian Festival Committee’s mission and purpose is to continue the tradition of sharing Ukrainian culture and heritage throughout the state of Maryland and to participate in the Baltimore Showcase of Nations Ukrainian Festival and the International Festival.
The Annual Ukrainian Festival was held in the month of July from 1976-1995. In 1996, the annual date was changed to the month of September due to cooler weather. The festival site has been held throughout Baltimore in various places, but has found a home in beautiful Patterson Park, 400 S Linwood Ave corner of Eastern Ave.
Festival Committee members are welcome and encouraged to join from each organization within the Baltimore Ukrainian Communities to include all church denominations (Baptist, Catholic, Orthodox, etc), veterans’ organization, youth organizations, sports teams, dance group(s) and private organizations.
