Known for its sunshine, fresh air, and open spaces, Alberta is a melting pot of different cultures and ethnicities. The people of Alberta celebrate this diversity, each year, with Heritage Day, which is observed on the first Monday in August. Museums run special events and there is a different theme for the day each year. The annual observance even has its own three-day festival, which is attended by thousands of Albertans. If you are proud of Alberta’s heritage (and the famed Canadian cooperation), we have some creative ways you can celebrate it.
