Multicultural Children's Day Event Summary 2016

Multicultural Children's Day 2016


We, the Turkish Canadian Society, contribute to a multicultural Canadian society in the city of Edmonton through International Children's Day held every year on April 23rd. We organize social events where we represent the Turkish culture.


Turkish Canadian Society had organized several Children's Day celebrations in the past in honor of the April 23, National Sovereignty and Children's Day in Turkey. These celebrations were mostly held with the Turkish Canadian Community and were neglected since 2012.


In 2016, the Board of Directors decided it was time for a larger event, even larger than Multicultural Children's Day in 2015 that will contribute more to multicultural Canadian society...


The Board approved a budget of $12,000 for this event.  


The successful event was held on April 24, 2016 at West Edmonton Mall - Newcap Radio Stage. More than 1000 people attended the celebrations. Cultural groups representing the local Latin, Irish, Indian, Ukranian, and Azerbaijani communities and more joined the Turkish Children in making this a truly amazing event. 


After the program regarding April 23rd Multicultural Children's Day 2016. Galaxyland has been reserved for the Community. 

Turkish Canadian Society of Edmonton had sold passes (Sunday, April 24th, 2016 between 6:30 to 9:30pm.) to Galaxyland for a fundraising event for Multicultural Children's Day 2016



TCS thanks all volunteers for their dedicated efforts and making this event a success.

Children's Day Event Summary 2015

Turkish Canadian Society had organized several Children's Day celebrations in the past in honor of the April 23, National Sovereignty and Children's Day in Turkey. These celebrations were mostly held with the Turkish Canadian Community and were neglected since 2012.


In 2015, the transitional Board of Directors decided it was time for a larger event that will mirror the international celebrations in Turkey. The Board approved a budget of $2,500 for this event. The program committee for the 2015 Children's Day included TCS Communication Coordinator, Sinem Senol and volunteers/members Zuhal Kurtcu, Deniz Tasgin, Hulya Tan, and Gulseren Gunes. 


The successful event was held on April 26, 2015 at the Art Gallery of Alberta. More than 150 people attended the celebrations. Cultural groups representing the local Latin American, Japanese, Irish, Indian, Ukranian, and Azerbaijani communities joined the Turkish Children in making this a truly amazing event. 


The venue was an expensive choice, but thanks to volunteers who saved money on other expenses like picture frames, accessories for children, and to our Embassy for sending us tshirts and souveniers we could give as gifts to participants, and to modest cash donations from 4 event participants we were well under the budget.


TCS thanks all volunteers for their dedicated efforts and making this event a success.
