The Union co-ordinates up to 50 meetings and events annually, aimed at the population of about 3,700 Macedonians living in Slovenia. Since 1992 it has organised Macedonian language courses and ethnic musical instrument courses in some schools. Macedonian folk music and dance are also presented at a folk festival in Kranj and also at international festivals.
Its membership includes numerous Macedonian cultural associations from around the country, each of which runs its own programme, for example Ljubljana Cultural Society which was established in 1965, has 450 members, runs its own Strune music group and Biljana choir, and incorporates literary, fine arts and sport sections.
