Amid the Russian invasion of Ukraine, The United Church of Christ near Wyoming is set to host the Ukrainian Food Festival on April 24, from 12 p.m.- 4 p.m. to support and celebrate Ukrainians.

The city has been outspoken in its support of Ukraine following the Russian invasion, and this support even led to downtown Cincinnati's march for Ukraine in late February.

Put on by two local charitable organizations — Cincy4Ukraine and Hope4Ukraine — the Ukrainian Food Festival celebrates Ukrainian culture by highlighting the dances, folk music and food found in the country.  There will also be kids activities, a photo-booth, plenty of souvenirs and pysanky (Easter eggs decorated with traditional folk designs), per a press release. Ukraine celebrates Easter on April 24.

Admission to the festival is free and all sales from the event will fund "medical equipment and supplies for areas of [Ukraine] most affected by war," according to a press release. This aid will also benefit Cincinnati's Ukrainian sister city, Kharkiv.

The United Church of Christ is located at 691 Fleming Road, Wyoming. For more information visit facebook.com/events.
