About Alberta Culture Days

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, province-wide celebration that has helped inspire the creation of Culture Days - a pan-Canadian movement to raise awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities.
