OK, I am so jealous that nothing like this ever happens in Vancouver.

  • Enjoy the sounds of the Korinnya Ukrainian Folk Ensemble, the music of Absolutely Unplugged, and the thrilling Ukrainian dance of Calgary'sTryzub and Suzirya.
  • Dance all night to the unique Ukrainian music of The Kubasonics.

In between the evening’s musical segments the guests will sample different varieties of sausage from producers across western Canada. The expected 300 guests will then vote on their favourite in each category, with the winners being announced at the end of the evening.
