Take a look at all that Alberta has to offer this weekend during Alberta Culture Days, a three day celebration of artists, history, and culture.

With more than 70 free activities in Calgary alone, the province-wide event allows Albertans to try their hand at beading, printmaking, drumming, designing, writing, and everything in between.

There will also be live demonstrations to watch, including glass-blowing and mural painting.

“Alberta Culture Days is our largest celebration of arts, heritage, culture and community,” said Ricardo Miranda, Minister of Culture and Tourism, in a release.

“For the past 10 years, Albertans have come together to share what culture means to them through family friendly, fun and inspiring events, and I encourage everyone to join the party at the end of September.”

Some museums around the province will be offering free admission from September 29 to October 1, and yes, that does include the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller. So if you’ve been putting off a visit to our fossilized friends, now would be the weekend to go.

Other sites will include the Reynolds-Alberta Museum, the Provincial Archives of Alberta, and the Alberta Foundation for the Arts.

There are over 300 activities taking place from Lethbridge to Fort McMurray, and events near you can be found by searching on the Alberta Culture Days website, either by postal code, city, or region.
