Discussions of Canada, our history, our present reality, and the possibilities of our still unwritten future have been popular in 2017, and this September, you are invited to keep the conversation and the celebrations of our nation going at the U of A’s Canada 150 Community Celebration.

On Sunday, September 24, 2017, all faculty, staff, students, and alumni are invited to gather together with members of the Edmonton community to celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial. The free event will take place on South Campus, where attendees will be treated to a fair-like atmosphere that will include a kite festival for the young (and those young at heart), wagon rides, museum tours, musical performances, food trucks, a Farmers’ Market, and talks by Jim Hole and our very own nature nut, John Acorn.

The highlight of the day will take place at noon with the opening of the U of A’s newest green space — our Canada 150 gift to current and future generations. This new naturalized space will include the Evergreen Pond and The Circle, serving as both a public park and a gathering place for outdoor ceremonies, performances, and lectures.

To stay up to date with the latest event information, attendance details, and volunteer opportunities, visit the Canada 150 Community Celebration website. (Note: Updates will be added to the site over the coming weeks.)

For now though, we hope that you and your family, friends, and neighbours will save the date to celebrate!
