Virtual Heritage Festival

See the World (virtually) in 2020! August 1 3 at our annual celebration of Canada’s multicultural heritage.

  • over 40 country pavilions will showcase their unique cultures
  • enjoy new entertainment from around the world and “bestof” performances from past years.
  • shop for cultural crafts, artwork and clothing in our Cultural Marketplace
  • enjoy authentic cultural food during Multicultural MonthTM!

NEW THIS YEAR almost everything!

Excellent entertainment featuring videos of performances from various countries and cultures, many behind-the-scenes examples at what it takes to put on the event as a pavilion participant, authentic food recipes both from our #FestivalFood series, plus “Make-it-at-Home” videos from the cultural groups, and historic insights.

Visit a new or favourite pavilion through our interactive online map. “Pop-in” for a visit to the country you would like to learn more about. Stay awhile, or visit someplace else. All from the comfort of your couch.

When 3 days aren’t enough, munch your way through Multicultural MonthTM! For the month of August, over 35 participating Edmonton restaurants have partnered with the Heritage Festival. View their menu on our web site, order direct, and pickup your food-to-go from the restaurant. Easy, delicious, and good for our community.

Help support Edmonton’s Food Bank. Donate funds through our web site. Drop off non-perishable food items Saturday August 1 from 10 am 4 pm at Southgate Mall or the Food Bank warehouse 11508 120 St.
