Canada's National Ukrainian Festival is set for next weekend just outside of Dauphin.
The festival runs from August 2-4 and it's sure to be another great event. Tickets are on sale right now and it's just $110 for a weekend pass.
"We're really excited. Every year we feel it's a new thing and we think it's even better and stronger this year," said Samantha Schiefke, CAO.
The Opening Ceremonies take place on Friday night at 7:00 p.m. The performances hit the stage right at 8:00 p.m.
Some of this year's performers include the Bratstva Studios, Marina Krut, Aurasia, Budmo, Zirka, Sawchuk Sisters, and the Riding & Dancing Cossacks. You can check out a full list of performers at Canada's National Ukrainian Festival.
On Sunday at 5:00 p.m., there will be a Perogy Eating Contest at the 730CKDM Cossack Tavern Arena. The first person to eat 24 is named the Ukrainian of the Year. You can still enter the contest by heading to the CNUF office before Friday.
You can also sign up at the festival information booth until August 3. The cost is $15, but hurry, the contest is limited to 15 people.
"That's going to be a blast, we can't wait to see how it all unfolds," added Schiefke.
Shuttle wristbands are also on sale right now. You can get a weekend one for just $15. That allows you unlimited ride between Dauphin and the hill. If you don't buy a wristband, it's $5 per ride.
