Alberta Day

Overview

Celebrating what makes Alberta unique.

Alberta became a province on September 1, 1905. In recognition of this anniversary and in celebration of our province’s unique spirit, culture and heritage, we have designated September 1 as Alberta Day.

A successful first Alberta Day

Under big Alberta skies, we spotlighted the stories, music, and spirit that bind us together and make Alberta unique. Thank you everyone who came out to events in Calgary, Edmonton and communities across the province to help make history celebrating the very first Alberta Day.  

See you next year!

Get involved

Alberta Day is a celebration of everything Alberta, from the past to the present. If you can't get out to an event, celebrate your own way!
