Events Description

Historic Calgary Week will be celebrated differently this year given the unprecedented times we find ourselves in. We will not be able to meet face to face but that will not dampen our enduring interest in and love of history.

Another of our Historic Calgary Week partners is bringing a virtual program to you. Fort Calgary has organized several events between July 24 and Heritage Day, August 3.

Despite being closed for most of the time, Calgary Public Library has been able to put forward a number of virtual presentations to occur during what would have been our “normal” Historic Calgary Week.

The annual Historic Calgary Week Crossword puzzle, the theme is “Visionaries.” and is available online for download.
