Arts and culture play a big role in helping to strengthen the identity and spirit of a community. This fall you can experience the vibrant community spirit of Grande Prairie at one of our city’s most dynamic annual events, Alberta Culture Days.
 
Now in its ninth year, Alberta Culture Days in Grande Prairie is a beloved local tradition that gives residents and visitors the chance to celebrate arts and culture in our city. From September 28th to 30th you can enjoy three full days of workshops, demonstrations and performances which celebrate the heritage of our province. Whether you’re looking to inspire your own artistic practice, or simply want to mingle with members of the community, Alberta Culture Days has something for everyone.
 
Alberta Culture Days festivities will be taking place at venues around Grande Prairie, giving visitors a great opportunity to check out the cultural institutions around the city. Get a weekend of fun and education started on Friday, September 28th at the Coffee Kick-Off in the Alberta Provincial Building. Here you can enjoy refreshments while learning more about all the activities the weekend has in store. Later that day, you can also check out the On Beat, Off Beat video art installation at the Montrose Cultural Centre or participate in a Geocaching-inspired scavenger hunt at the Centre 2000.
 
Saturday highlights include Live Art Demonstrations, Morning Yoga and a Basics of Photography workshop. Also be sure to check out the Wearable Art Show at the Centre for Creative Arts, a fan-favourite that showcases beautiful hand-crafted pieces in a cat-walk fashion show. Bring the family out on Sunday for the Hula Hoop Circus and the Craft Zone.
 
Those are just a few of the fun and eye-opening activities you can participate in at Alberta Culture Days. During this jam-packed weekend of events, you’re going to want a convenient place to stay.
