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.  



  •  A big thank you to all of the performeres, teachers, parents and volunteers who made CROATOAN's 38th Annual Spring Concert and Banquet a huge success! Classes are now finished for the 2015/16 year. The executive council of Croatoan would like to wish you and your family a great summer and we hope to see you all again next year!
