Ethnik Festival of Arts & Culture

Alberta's Premier Black History Month Celebration

Ethnik Festival of Arts and Culture 2023 at TELUS Convention Centre

24th & 25th February

The Annual Ethnik Festival of Arts and Culture is the premier, all-inclusive flagship festival of Ethnik Festivals Association. It is part of the celebration of Black History (Excellence) Month during the last week of February each year. Members of the Afro-Canadian/ Caribbean communities come together to celebrate diversity, inclusivity and share their vibrant cultural traditions with other communities from across Canada. Our goal is to promote leadership, inform and inspire younger generations to express genuine versions of themselves through the lens of Afro-Canadian and many other world art traditions.


The 2022 edition will be a display of creative genius from artists in Calgary and Edmonton to the viewing pleasure of audiences online across the globe. More so, festival participants get to win lots of consolation prizes during the festival quiz competition.
