Holeovice Market invites you to another of its gastronomic events, this time with a focus on Ukrainian delicacies.
On Thursday, May 18, from 11 a.m. to 22 p.m. you can attend the second annual UKA UKRAJINU, a successful Ukrainian gastronomic festival.
There will be plenty of half-moon shaped dumplings called vareniki, popular cabbage rolls filled with minced meat and rice with tomato sauce golubky, soups, and sweets.
The first edition of the festival, which drew 4,000 people, was a huge success last year.
“The main purpose of the festival is to celebrate the neighborhood.” Whether in the sense of being Ukrainian, the Czech Republic’s largest minority, or of two mutually close countries that have come together considerably more forcefully in the last two years. We wish to showcase the best of Ukrainian culinary available in the Czech Republic,” said Michal Tošovský, Program Director of the Holešovice Market Hall.
Visitors will be able to purchase jewellery and accessories symbolizing Ukrainian traditions by Ally Pecherskaya or make a donation to help those affected by the conflict through the Refugee Aid Organisation.
You can also look forward to a musical program because, at the same time, the #5PROSTOR music series will take place in the Market Hall.
It will be held at the Marketplace from May 16 to 20. For a voluntary admission fee, you can attend five concerts in five unconventional venues, accompanied by special light design. Dmitrievna, a Czech-Ukrainian singer and producer who balances on the border of techno and pop, will perform on May 18 at 9 p.m., symbolically closing the UKA Ukraine festival.
