Celebrate New Year’s Eve Ukrainian-style in Langley

Ukrainian Orthodox New Year’s festivities are in Aldergrove this year.

An Aldergrove church is the site for a New Year’s celebration in mid-January.

The Ukrainian Club of Abbotsford Association (UCAA) is hosting its annual Malanka (Ukrainian New Year’s) event at the St. Joachim & Ann’s Church Hall, 2827-273rd St., on Jan. 16.

Ukrainian or Orthodox New Year’s falls two weeks after the more common New Year (under the Julian calendar). This year it falls on Jan. 14 but the celebration will be the nearest Saturday.

The Malanka party starts with dancers and entertainment at 6 p.m. followed by dinner at 7 p.m.

The Yevshan Dancers and the band S-bahn will perform during the evening.

Tickets are $50 for adults, $15 for children seven to 15, and free for children six and younger. For tickets, call 604-856-6136.

Funds from the event help the non-profit association with works to showcase and preserve Ukrainian culture. The association also does the traditional egg decorating classes, perogy and cabbage roll sales at farmers’ markets, and performances by Yevshan throughout the year.

Learn more on the association’s Facebook page.
