Nestled in the Pocono mountains of
Pennsylvania, just 75 miles north of Philadelphia and 90
miles west of New York City, the Ukrainian Homestead
offers visitors a wide range of activities in a
beautiful country setting. Founded in 1957 by ODWU, the
Homestead is dedicated to the celebration of Ukrainian
heritage and culture.
For over 50 years, the Homestead has
been a unique gathering place for friends and family. If
you want to just unwind from big city stress, you can
pick a soft grassy spot on the many acres of the
Homestead and watch the clouds go by, or take a
refreshing dip in the pool. Whether you are a sightseer
or an avid sports enthusiast, you'll find something to
meet your interests all within a few miles of the
Homestead. You can also participate in any of our
year, on the third weekend in August, the Homestead
attracts thousands of visitors to its two-day cultural
folk festival featuring Ukrainian dance ensembles,
singers, musicians, arts and crafts vendors. The
festival also includes an evening of dancing 'till dawn.
Ukrainian youth organizations such as
PLAST, SUM, and other organizations hold weekend
outings, meetings or conferences at the Homestead.
Weddings and special family gatherings are another
reason to get together at the Homestead. From picnics or
formal events to soccer or volleyball tournaments, our
country place has the room and the facilities for small
or large groups to hold whatever events they choose
in any season.....for any reason.
