Sorochinsky Yarmarok is the biggest national week-long trade fair, held annually near the city of Poltava, in Sorochintsy village. The fair has been held here at harvest time, each August, through centuries.
Today, the fair serves for two purposes - to demonstrate old style national traditions of crafts and popular art (you can buy craft works and souvenirs which are brought from all corners or Ukraine), and to provide a presentation field for products of modern Ukrainian industries. Visiting the annual fair is a wonderful entertaining excursion into old Ukrainian culture.
