2022 List of Entertainers 

We are thrilled to welcome back local performers who will be showcasing our dynamic Ukrainian culture.   Saskatchewan is so fortunate to have a wealth of Ukrainian talent both homegrown and with strong ties to Ukraine.  The amazing entertainment doesn't end there.

What is old is new again. The newly formed band, Nova Mria will hit the stage. 

Hometown favorites, Half Na Piv are back. This energetic Saskatoon band is renowned across the province and country for their ability to bring a party wherever they go.  With their finger on the pulse of the crowd they are performing for, this dynamic group of talented musicians is a guaranteed good time.

Stay tuned for additional performers coming in 2022.

Vesna Festival strives to provide a stunning display of performers each year. Our local talent is renowned not only in Saskatchewan but internationally and we are proud to show it off to our guests.

Your Evening Will Include:

With our return to Centennial Hall at TCU Place, Vesna Festival will be the hottest spring ticket in town. 

Homemade Ukrainian Food is available for purchase in advance on Eventbrite.  Perogies/varenyky, cabbage rolls/holubtsi, lovingly prepared by hand as well as mushroom cream sauce and kovbasa.  There will be a limited amount of food available for purchase at the venue so buying food tickets in advance is recommended to guarantee you’re not disappointed.  Kovbasa on a bun will also be for sale on-site during the evening.  

 Stroll through the artisan market and discover the fashion and art created by various artists of Ukrainian descent along with vendors selling Ukrainian merchandise. We also offer a community display with information about the Ukrainian events happening in and around our community.

Relax over a cup of coffee and delectable desserts in Cafe Kyiv. Enjoy the company of close friends and new acquaintances.

Our younger guests will enjoy the Children’s Sadok where they can make a complimentary Ukrainian craft to take home created by our resident artist, Natalia Garmasar.

 All the while fabulous entertainment will be on stage to set the scene.

Prepare to be entertained by our headlining entertainers before you dance the night away to the sounds of Nova Mria, making their first appearance at Vesna Festival and Half na Piv, a local Ukrainian band that never disappoints.  

No Ukrainian evening is complete without a Kolomeyka!  Participate or just watch the amazing talents of Ukrainian dancers as they try to outdo each other with high flying flips, tricks, and turns on the dance floor. This is a spectacle in itself.  Have your phone handy as you will want to video the amazing impromptu athleticism, artistry, and cultural display of the Kolomeyka.  You may even want to jump in. 

 

Whether you have attended Vesna in the past and intend to meet up with old friends or you are coming to the festival for the first time, we know you will have an experience to remember!

We can’t wait to welcome you in person to Vesna Festival!
