Peruvian Independence Day celebration - Everyone Welcome!:
Posted May 31, 2008


ACULPECA will be putting on its yearly Peruvian Independence Day celebration at the Citadel Maclab Theatre on July 19th at 1:00pm. The yearly event is a way to showcase the Peruvian culture with the entire Edmonton community and is open to the general public. Come on out to see performances from the ACULPECA Peruvian Dancers as well as from our special guests from the Edmonton Folk Arts Council (Pedro Guasp Spanish Dancers, and Usha Kala Nikatan East Indian Dancers).

Tickets are $5.00 and available at the door. Children under 6 are free. All proceeds will go to UNICEF in support of the victims of the cyclone in Burma. The Peruvian community received amazing support from Edmontonians after the 8.0-magnitude earthquake that hit Peru in August 2007, and this is ACULPECA's way of reciprocating in the wake of this tragedy. UNICEF will be on hand to accept donations, and your support would be greatly appreciated.
