Welcome to 2017

WELCOME to 2017!

Just a reassuring note to say we haven’t been contemplating our navels or eating pyrohy and watching reality TV. We have been hard at it planning the 2017 program of activities in our brand new location, the Town of Lamont.

We’re excited about how things are shaping up. But where to begin? Some facts first:
Babas & Borshch is happening August 26-27, 2017 at the Lamont Rec Centre Complex, 4844-49 St
• This year we invite you to Learn. Connect. Immerse.
• Your first stop should be the Information Table in the lobby of the Hall. There you’ll:
          o get your coupon for Free Borshch---yay!
o get your paperwork in order with a Ukrainian Passport
o buy souvenirs (program, tumbler, shopping bag, Squeeze Your Baba doll)
o buy your RV or tenting Parking Pass ($20 per night)
o enter our Postal Code Contest. Just give us your postal code and phone number for a chance to win 1 of 8 $25 gift certificates redeemable at any Baba’s Bazaar merchant. Four winners each day! You must be present to win and shop!
o pick up the 2017 Word Find Puzzle for a chance to win two tickets to the 2018 Zabava!
o Celebrate your birthday at the Festival and get a free Babas & Borshch tumbler (while supplies last) as our gift to you! Valued at $6. Just show us a driver’s license or birth certificate and Enjoy!
o pick up your Zabava tickets if we’re holding them for you
o sign in if you’re a performer, presenter, volunteer to get some goodies
• Next step: enjoy all we have to offer—food concessions, Baba’s Bazaar, Outdoor Music Jam, Beer Garden, Inflatables, Kids’ Activities, speakers, dancers, hands-on workshops. (Watch this blog space over the next few weeks as we introduce you to the performers and speakers and workshop leaders who make this Festival come alive.)
