Join Vyshyvanka Day Celebrations Across Canada!

Join us in celebrating Vyshyvanka Day, held traditionally on the third Thursday of May every spring, by wearing a Ukrainian embroidered shirt. Vyshyvanka Day is intended to unite all Ukrainians over the world, regardless of religion, language, or their place of residence.
In past years, there have been many celebrations in our communities across Canada! This year the Ukrainian Canadian Congress is partnering with the Vyshyvanka Association to encourage all Canadians to organize and participate in the Vyshyvanka Day celebrations in their communities between May 15-26, 2019. We hope this year even more people will join!
