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. In 2015, there were almost 900 events in more than 70 communities across Alberta over the Culture Days weekend.

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 taken part 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. 

Join the Fun!

This year, Alberta Culture Days is scheduled to take place from Sept. 30 to Oct. 2, 2016. If you would like to get involved in this unique celebration or for more information please contact Theresa Jolliffe,, 780-743-7994.
