Food, Folk Art, and Friends
Ukrainian Homestead in Lehighton is a vibrant community and cultural center tucked in the peaceful Pocono countryside. Their main attraction is the two-day Ukrainian Festival, which is held each year on the third weekend of August. Ukrainian dance groups and musicians perform and keep their heritage alive. The festival also features folk artists, craft vendors, and traditional foods.
Other activities at Ukrainian Homestead include workshops where you can master skills like traditional dancing and bead work. The food festivals and holiday dinners are full of authentic treats.
Ukrainian Homestead is also a gathering place. Rent their grounds and banquet hall the next time you’re planning an event. The onsite motel offers simple rooms if you’re visiting from out of town or just want to spend a night in the country.
