Serbian Fest 2020

Join us and |


Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic and at the direction of the Government of Alberta to declare a public health emergency, we must sadly confirm the CANCELLATION of the 2020 Serbian Festival.

While this decision comes at a time of universal uncertainty, we take the safety and health of our guests, volunteers and community very seriously. We urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you next year.

Stay safe and healthy!


Jason Kenney

Premier of Alberta

Had a fantastic time at the #Calgary @SerbianFest. Beautiful folklore, great food, and of course slivovica! Thanks for the very warm welcome.

John Barlow

Member of Parliament for Foothills

I want to thank you for inviting us to participate in the annual Serbian Festival. We thoroughly enjoyed our day visiting with you, Premier Kenney and certainly his Excellency Mihailo Papazoglu.

The hospitality shown by yourself and the organizers was once again incredible making for an exceptional experience.

Mihailo Papazoglu

Serbian Ambassador to Canada

Odlična organizacija ekipe srpske zajednice i srdačnost, pokazuje mnogobrojna posećenost kanadskih zvaničnika i gostiju. Sa ponosom mogu reći da su na pravi način mogli da se upoznaju sa srpskim dostignućima, srpskim naučnicima i gastronomijom.
Upućujem Vam još jednom svoju podršku da i u budućnosti ovakva značajna manifestacija bude razlog da se srpska zajednica i mladi naraštaji okupljaju, gaje svoju tradiciju, kulturu i jezik, i da se veze izmedju Srbija i Kanade još više učvršćuju.
Srdačni pozdrav srpskoj dijaspori i Srpskom festivalu u Kalgariju. Celo pismo mozete procitati ovde.
