About the Edmonton Heritage Festival
The Edmonton Heritage Festival is the world's largest three-day multiculturalism celebration. The festival showcases a diversity of cuisine, entertainment, interpretive materials, and crafts worldwide. There is no admission to enter or to watch the many cultural dances and folk music shows throughout the day. Attendees will be able to purchase various food made by the pavilions. Due to the renovations currently happening at our usual home of Hawrelak Park, the festival has been relocated to the Edmonton Exhibition Lands and Borden Parks.
