The Croatian Folklore Ensemble CROATOAN was founded in 1978 to celebrate Croatia’s traditional songs and dances throughout the National Capital Region of Canada. Since then, our dedication to our Croatian heritage has warmed the hearts of Croatian-Canadians and other Canadians alike. First founded under the auspices of the Croatian-Canadian Club of Ottawa-Carleton, CROATOAN became an independent not-for-profit organization, registered in Ontario, with its own board of directors and constitution, by 1992. CROATOAN is a member of the Croatian Folklore Federation of Canada-East.

  • The Croatian Folklore Ensemble CROATOAN was founded in 1978 to celebrate Croatia’s traditional songs and dances throughout the National Capital Region of Canada. Since then, our dedication to our Croatian heritage has warmed the hearts of our loyal fans and supporters, especially those of Croatian background. To celebrate the momentous occasion of our 40th Anniversary in 2018, we have begun preparations for a festive day. A day where our past and present teachers and participants, and the legions of supporters and volunteers who have assisted in all of our previous events can join us on Saturday May 5th, 2018 to celebrate and enjoy an Afternoon Concert of Croatian Folklore at the Algonquin Commons Theatre and a 40th Anniversary Evening Gala at the beautiful Sala San Marco Banquet & Conference Centre. In an effort to fund the associated costs of this large undertaking, CROATOAN is offering a variety of sponsorship and related advertising opportunities over the next 18 months as outlined in this 40th Anniversary Celebration Sponsorship Package. Please contact info@croatoan.ca if interested. Thank you in advance for your support!
