ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

Croatian songs and dances tell many unique stories that contribute to shaping Canada’s cultural landscape; many of which will converge in Calgary over the 2024 May long weekend for the 46th Annual Western Canadian Folklore Festival.

Overseen by the Western Canadian Croatian Folklore Federation, the goal is to gather in celebration of our cultural heritage and to share the rich and diverse cultural tapestry of Croatian folklore with our Canadian communities.
