Past Events


Met Gala of the North

The Met Gala of the North is an annual fundraiser for Fyrefly Institute programming. Inspired by the fashion event of the year, The Met Gala, we incorporate the yearly theme for a fun, bright evening with special musical guests for a night to support community. In 2019, our special guest was award winning Canadian Musician Jann Arden. Edmontonians are invited to dress in their best costumes and celebrate the night away for a great cause.
