Edmonton Heritage Festival
Experience the world in a weekend without leaving Edmonton at the world's largest multicultural festival. Take a peek at Pakistan, taste the flavours of Fiji, feel the beat of Brazil and explore exotic cultures from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe.
The Edmonton Heritage Festival, presented by Servus Credit Union, is a family-friendly, alcohol-free mingling of nations. Shop for artwork, and chat with folks who are proud to discuss their unique roots and the rich multi-cultural communities they have created in Canada. Over 70 pavilions representing more than 90 countries and cultures come together to share their entertainment and culture and celebrate diversity.
From August 3-5, Hawrelak Park becomes a mosaic of multi-cultural sights, sounds and aromas. Sample cuisine from Peru, Ukraine and Greece all on one plate. See Irish dancers and African drummers while learning something new. You'll finish the day with a better understanding and appreciation for our planet’s remarkable diversity. Though there is no public parking during the festival, you can take advantage of the ETS Park & Ride which makes access a breeze.
While there is no admission fee, visitors are invited to donate a non-perishable item to the Edmonton Food Bank.
