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.

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.

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.

Youth Participation

The Serbian Fest is calling for youth 15 to 19 years old for a unique volunteer experience!

Do you want to earn skills in working with kids, build your resume, and get examples and experience for your next interview?
This year, Serbian Fest offers a unique opportunity for training and practicum experience for youth interested in working in Calgary summer camps next year.
During the 4-hour long training weekend before the Festival, we will be able to show you the key elements of working in children programs.
You will have the opportunity to learn how to prepare a site for the program and have a chance to practice supercool activities and leading them, with our help, during the Festival.
We are planning three activity stations:

  1. Our famous face painting
  2. Craft table with amazing and simple crafts for kids
  3. Fun outdoor games for groups of children
To make all this work, we need you!
What we can promise is a lot of fun, a chance to make new friends, and an opportunity to master relevant skills for writing resumes. All the participants will get valuable and valid references for future job searching.
If you are interested, let us know by Monday , May 30th at the latest by sending us an email at
