Peace Walk, for Indigenous Reconciliation

This event commemorates Prime Minister Harper's official apology made to Canada's Indigenous people for the Indian Residential School system. It helps us keep this issue in our minds today, and invites us all to think about what we can do in our everyday lives for truth and reconciliation. Download the poster and itinerary here.


Canada Day

9:00 am - 4:00 pm. Celebrate Canada Day in the birthplace of Calgary, and many other Canadian things in our area-the North West Mounted Police, Indigenous and intercultural relations, and strong community values. We have family fun all day, including: a free pancake breakfast; live music and entertainment; children's crafts and petting zoo; food trucks; a chance to dress-up like a Mountie; and Indigenous arts and cultural sharing. NO PUBLIC PARKING at Fort Calgary this day. Our parking lot is reserved for staff & volunteers only. Click HERE for more details.



Heritage Day

Join us for some family-friendly activities from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on Heritage Day in August. Activities throughout the day could include: nature crafts with the kids, learning more about Fort Calgary's award-winning community garden on an interpretive tour, art exhibitions, live children's historical theatre, or live musical performances.


Artisan's Fair

ARTISAN FAIR 2017 - November 11th
Join us at 10:30 am for a special Remembrance Day service facilitated by the RCMP Veterans Association. Following the service, from 11:30am to 5:00pm, local artisans will be selling their handmade goods throughout the Fort Calgary hallways for an early opportunity to shop for a special, one-of-a-kind gift. A lunch service will be offered upstairs around noon, and admission is free with a non-perishable food item donation to the Veteran's Food Bank.
