Learn about the significance of the turban, have a volunteer show you how to wrap one and even take your turban home. Take part in this event as we raise awareness together – everyone is welcome!

Turban, Eh! events promote and celebrate diversity, and encourage participants to stand in solidarity against racism and xenophobia. When racist posters targeting the Sikh community were found around the University of Alberta campus, the UofA Student Union, UofA Sikh Students’ Association, World Sikh Organization of Canada, and Edmonton’s Sikh community came together to create the "Turban, Eh!" campaign.
