    Heritage Festival- A Cultural Journey

    by Hanau93 Written Jun 13, 2005

    At the Dutch Pavillioin

    The Festival usually takes place the first weekend in August . Hawrelark Park serves as the venue where all the different ethnic groups have their tents and stages up. You can learn about the individual cultures, take in the dances and also the excellent food. Be aware though that you will not be able to take your car. Edmonton Transit offers rides from spots that are advertised in the paper and the shuttle service is pretty frequent.
    There is no entrance fee but a donation for the foodbank ( cans , non-perishables) is greatly appreciated.. Enjoy!!

    Edmonton is fairly diverse for such a small city. The largest ethnic groups are the Ukranians, Germans, East Indians, Chinese, Irish, Scottish - not in that order. In Vegreville, Alberta there is a huge Ukranian easter egg on display that would be great to see if you painted easter eggs as a child.

    Edmonton is a large cutural center for many ethnic groups, about 10% of Edmonton's population is of Ukrainian origin.

    This is the famous pysanka in Vegreville, just an hour's drive east of Edmonton.
