Our History

The Queen Helena Canadian-Croatian Cultural & Charitable Society was formed in 1978, in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. Since its origin, the organization’s goals and missions have been to promote and preserve the rich cultural heritage of its Croatian ancestors. With numerous dance performances and tambura accompaniments, Queen Helena C.C.C. & C.S. has entertained a vast number of audiences throughout Canada, United States, Croatia and Europe.

Since its inception, the group has been an active member of the Canadian-Croatian Folklore Federation (East), performing at the annual Folklore Festivals in May and TamburaFests in November.

Today, the organization consists of various dance and music groups: Beginners, Juniors, Intermediates, Seniors, Young Adults, Parents & Tambura Combo. Our membership numbers over 70 performers.
