Ukraine Fest Fundraiser Dinner and Show
June 1 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT$100
100% of proceeds benefit Ukraine via Quinte local non-profit Humanity For Free Ukraine.
Enjoy a 3-course made from scratch Ukrainian dinner featuring Victory Varenyky (Pierogies for Peace,) borshch, and special yellow and blue macarons from pastry chef of “The Macaron Studio” in Kyiv, Ukraine. Paired with delicious and nutritious Oblipyka Ukrainian “iced tea” made from sea buckthorn berries.
Multiple Live Musical acts presenting Ukrainian music in styles ranging from traditional folk singing to the headlining act: Balaklava Blues –
Balaklava Blues is the brainchild of Mark and Marichka Marczyk, creators of the multi-award winning guerrilla-folk-opera Counting Sheep and leaders of the mighty Lemon Bucket Orkestra – Canada’s notorious 12 piece balkan-party-punk-massive. Falling somewhere between a traditional song cycle and a full blown multimedia techno show, the duo fuses Ukrainian polyphony and other folk traditions with EDM, trap, dub step, and more as a launching pad to explore the seemingly never-ending blues that have long emanated from the Ukrainian steppe.
The evening will also include a short live Auction, with Auctioneer Hoss of Hoss’s Diner, presenting several Ukrainian art pieces including a very special limited edition photography print of a Kyiv metro token by @peter_andrew_lusztyk.
Many thanks to the generous performers and venue Hoss’s for donating their time, space, and talents to make this fundraiser a success!
