What is Alberta Culture Days?
Alberta Culture Days started in 2008 as Alberta Arts Day – one day to recognize the value of the province’s arts and cultural communities, with 100 events held in 30 communities. Since then, it has expanded into an annual three-day celebration.
Alberta Culture Days inspired 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 lives of their communities.
The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo has participated in Alberta Culture Days since 2009. The festival is a showcase of our community’s vibrant arts, rich heritage and cultural diversity. Wood Buffalo Alberta Culture Days is a chance for our artists and performers to shine, celebrating our unique culture, heritage, and the place we call home.
The 2017 Alberta Culture Days in Wood Buffalo will be celebrated from September 29 to October 1. With a variety of daily activities planned by our local arts and culture organizations and enthusiasts, there is something the whole family can enjoy!
