Alberta Culture Days began in 2008 as Alberta Arts Day, a one-day event to recognize the value of Alberta's arts and cultural communities. There were 100 events held in 30 communities across the province, and a flagship celebration at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium in Calgary.
Since then, it has expanded into a vibrant, three-day, provincewide celebration that has helped inspire the creation of Culture Days - a pan-Canadian movement to raise the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities.
Alberta Culture Days 2017, September 29-October 1, will continue to encourage all Albertans to experience how culture contributes to a prosperous, vibrant society.
Alberta Culture Days is helping to achieve the goals of our province's cultural policy, The Spirit of Alberta.
