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 2023 edition will be a display of creative genius from artists in Calgary and from other parts of Canada and beyond to the viewing pleasure of audiences in person and online across the globe. More so, festival participants get to win lots of consolation prizes during the festival quiz competition. The 24th of February is the pre-festival activation with a special food competition along with other artist performances. We call it the Calgary Food War in "The Battle of the Kings". Its taking place at the Sait Academy Kitchen with a special guest appearance, the celebrity Chef Roger Mooking as our chief host. The 25th of February is the main festival day starting off at 11 am. The venue is at the TELUS Convention Centre in downtown Calgary. The 2023 lineup of local and international acts will be updated soon.
