Ukrainian Festival "Vyshyvanka"


The fourth Ukrainian Cultural Festival "Vyshyvanka" took place in Wellington on the 24th of November, 2012 organized by Ukrainian Gromada of Wellington  and supported by Wellington City Council.

The guests from different regions of New Zealand came to Wellington to celebrate Ukrainian culture and traditions, spend great time together singing folk songs, enjoying beautiful music and dance and treating themselves to the delicious Ukrainian cuisine.

One of the important goals of the Festival was to promote Ukrainian national traditions among the young generation of Ukrainians. The children were involved in various activities such as design and coloring of traditional Ukrainian embroidery shirts and headbands and creating unique origami toys.

Among the distinguished guests of the Festival were Ambassador of the Russian Federation and Mr V. Tereshchenko and  the priest of Wellington's Russian  Orthodox Church father Alexandr.

Ukrainian Gromada of Wellington would like to thank all of our performers, helpers and attendants. We are looking forward to meeting you again soon!

We hope you will enjoy the below photos from the Festival as much as the actual event.
