Perogy-Fest 2022

Perogy-Fest 2022!

April 1 to 18

                Winners will be announced on April 25th

We were so 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.

We’re reaching out to all the communities of Springfield to raise awareness of our local food establishments. Participating restaurateurs, caterers, specialty food creators and community kitchens will create a special perogy offer.

Participants will donate 10% of net proceeds to the Springfield Chamber of Commerce and we’ll forward the donation to the Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal (Canadian Red Cross).

We’ll announce the full donation amount on our website in mid-May 2022.
