Events Description

Chinook Country Historical Society proudly presents the Anniversary edition of Historic Calgary Week 

Chinook Country Historical Society is pleased to present the 26th annual Historic Calgary Week. Join us as we celebrate the rich history, culture and community of Calgary and area with more than 60 events over 11 days – Friday, July 22 to Monday, August 1.

Enjoy neighbourhood concerts, walks, talks, and explore museums, heritage buildings, cemeteries, parks, libraries and archives.

As we celebrate learning, come discover the leaders and visionaries who contributed to the dynamic history of Calgary. Join us as we honour a partner in learning, the Calgary Public Library, and Annie Davidson, who was instrumental in the creation and funding of the city’s first library. Based on our recent publication, “”In The Footsteps of Giants””, we present a special program to introduce new Canadians to our history.

Complete the historical crossword puzzle in the Calgary Herald and discover Calgary’s historical treasures during the “”History Hunt”” challenge.

For full program details, please visit the Chinook Country Historical Society (CCHS) website at chinookcountry.org or the CCHS Facebook page.

CCHS is the local chapter of the Historical Society of Alberta, which was formed in 1907 by an act of the Alberta Legislature.

For walking tours, please dress for the weather, wear good walking shoes and bring water if it is hot.

All events are open to the public and, with few exceptions, are free of charge but donations are appreciated. Some require pre-registration due to limited space.
