Cheremosh Ukrainian Dance Festival

Cheremosh Dance Festival MedalsThe Cheremosh Ukrainian Dance Festival is one of the largest dance festivals of its kind in North America. It generally takes place during the second weekend in May, and provides thousands of dancers with the opportunity to perform and learn in a professional and constructive environment.

The festival began in 1984, and has now grown to include over three hundred performances, distributing more than two thousand medals to young dancers over the course of a four-day event. Each year, the festival concludes with a “Show of Stars” production, with tickets open to the public, showcasing the top-ranking dances of the festival. This Ukrainian dance festival is marked on the calendars of Ukrainian dancers and their families all over Alberta and the prairies. We invite you to come and share in the experience!

Planning for the 30th Anniversary of the Cheremosh Ukrainian Dance Festival is underway. The Festival will take place Thursday May 8, 2014 to Sunday May 11, 2014. Registration packages will be sent out and available on this website by mid-October.
