ALBERTA ESTONIAN HERITAGE SOCIETY
A HERITAGE OF GROWTH – DEEP ROOTS – AND VISION
The AEHS generally holds several cultural events throughout the year. These have included promoting and supporting a film and cast member from Estonia at the Calgary International Film festival, an art installation exhibit at New Gallery, holding our Annual General Meeting and the lively Jaanipäev (Midsummer) Celebration.
NEW January 2020 is an Estonian Language Course, thanks to support from the Estonian Foundation of Canada. This fun engaging course is delivered through online and in-person sessions.
The AEHS had a presence at the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra 2019-2020 season launch. The music presented was of the Modern Masters including Arvo Pärt. The AEHS had an exhibit supported in part by the Honorary Consul of Estonia in Alberta. AEHS President Kelly Schuler spoke at the special pre-concert talks.

Our combined Jaanipäev and Centenary event in 2018 included hundreds of participants, from far and near, of all ages. Among the highlights were a roast pork dinner, traditional games and folk dance performances with dancers from Estonia, thanks to support from the Estonian Foundation of Canada.
