Perogy-Fest, which took place from April 1-18, included 9 restaurants/caterers/local perogy makers in Springfield who all created a specialty perogy dish and donated 10% (or more) to the Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal from the sales of those specialty perogy dishes.
The Springfield Chamber is still in complete awe of how quickly this event came together, how willingly the participants were to say yes to being a part of this event and the support and generosity from our participants and the community members.
In just 3 weeks, $3,000 was raised for the Ukrainian Humanitarian Crises Appeal, and dozens upon dozens of perogies were hand-made, sold and enjoyed by so many.
Megan Annett, Manager of Corporate & Community Engagement for the Canadian Red Cross was amazed at the dollar amount raised in such a short period of time but also said, “I’m not surprised as this is what small towns do, they rally together, especially when it’s for a good cause.” Annett also said that, “this donation will go to helping so many people in need right now, and the Red Cross was so thankful for this support.”
The Springfield Chamber is so proud of our community for making this event the success that it was and for everyone coming together to support such an important cause. If you would still like to donate to the Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal, you can do so at www.redcross.ca.

Doreen Palidwor – Homemade Perogies
Winner of Perogy-Fest 2022
We’re excited to introduce the first annual Springfield Chamber of Commerce (SCC) Perogy-Fest!
Springfield is blessed to be home of a strong vibrant Ukrainian-Canadian community. We have the Immaculate Conception Ukrainian Greek Catholic church and spectacular Grotto in Cooks Creek. The Ukrainian National Cemetery on Lorne Hill Rd. There are two performing Ukrainian dance ensembles, Selo and Mohutniy. Our school division offers Ukrainian Bilingual Programs to continue the teachings of Ukrainian traditions and heritage.
Chances are, if you live here, you have Ukrainian descent and if you don’t, you probably have connections with someone that does. At the very least, you’ve tasted the wonderous Ukrainian dish… the perogy! After all, we’re also home of Hazelridge the Perogy Capital of Canada.
Remember to say “Perogy-Fest” when you order this special dish.
Participants will donate 10% of net proceeds to the Springfield Chamber of Commerce and we’ll forward the donation to
We’ll announce the full donation amount on our website in mid-May 2022.

Almond flour Taco perogy was what I bought and I and my brother were floored with the flavour and texture, delicious and so so tasty, and we’ve been through plenty of them in our over joint 127 years of Polish/Ukrainian meals! 5“
