History of the Association
Early Telugu pioneers in Edmonton came up with an idea to start an organization named Andhra Cultural Association, and it was formally established on January 13, 1969. Our Association is one of the oldest Telugu Associations in North America. The Association caters to cultural and social needs of the Telugu people living in and around Edmonton Area.

In order to bring all Telugu speaking people under one hood, Association was renamed as 'Telugu Cultural Association of Edmonton' in the year 2016.
