Cultural Events Upcoming Events

Alberta Culture Days

September 28 to 30 Alberta Culture Days began in 2008 as Alberta Arts Day, a oneday event to recognize the value of Alberta’s arts and cultural communities. 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 the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities. In 2011 thousands of Albertans discovered, experienced and celebrated our heritage, cultural diversity and provincial pride through 1,046 events in 93 communities. Alberta Culture Days 2012, will continue to showcase the province’s arts, multicultural, heritage and non-profit/voluntary organizations; creative industries and individual artists, while encouraging all Albertans to discover the important contributions of culture to a prosperous, vibrant society. Check out to see what is happening in Okotoks for this year’s Alberta Culture Days!!
