Our History

The Vancouver Hungarian Cultural Society provides a place for Hungarian heritage groups (theater, dance), lively, colourful programs (music, literature, arts), gala events, dinners and culinary events. Every year we celebrate and commemorate the many important and pivotal moments of our history. We strive to provide entertainment and cultural experiences for all ages, introduction to Hungarian culture and contact with local Hungarians while also connecting with our country of origin. The Hungarian Hall is for all of us. Our goal is to ensure a positive public profile and an active community. We welcome ideas, suggestions, and we always welcome a helping hand.

 

Since the 19th century, Hungarians have been living in Western Canada. From the earliest days, communities were established in places likes Abbotsford, B.C. and have spread throughout Metro Vancouver, Vancouver Island, the Okanagan and Central/Northern B.C. The Hungarian Cultural Society was formally established in the late 1940’s. Currently it is estimated that there are approximately 60,000 people of Hungarian origin in British Columbia.
