Dear friends,

You are cordially invited to the biggest folklore event in Ottawa, the second annual Folk Fest which will be held on May 21-23, 2016! The Church and School Congregation of St. Stefan and the folkloric ensembles Kolo and Legende, are organizing a folk festival and we are inviting folk dance groups from all over Canada and the United States. We are inviting you to take part in this amazing event and show our Canadian audiences about our culture through song and dance.


Our Folk Fest is a great way for dancers and spectators to meet new people, make new friends, and have a great experience. Our wish is for you to spend a couple of days in the capital city of Canada and visit some of our best tourist attractions.

The Folk Fest would be a three day event, rich with a cultured program, games for kids, live music, and amazing food - all being held at our church grounds.

You can view the following link for events that will be happening in our city during the Folk Fest so that you may take part in them as well:

You can also view the following videos of our Serbian festival that is held each September, to have a better idea of what our grounds look like. We hope to organize something similar to our annual Festival (which you can see in these videos) and hopefully even better.

The success and scope of our folklore event will depend on your ability to attend. We hope you will join us in helping us represent our culture and making this event an unforgettable one.

More details regarding performances and schedules will be sent out at a later date once we have received the RSVPs from the groups.

We hope to see you all attending!

Kindest regards,

CSO St. Stefan, FG Kolo, and FA Legende
