Sundre celebrates Alberta Culture Days

Family friendly events hosted at museum, library and skatepark

SUNDRE — From Celtic, classical and country music to live art demonstrations and pioneer heritage displays as well as jumps and tricks on skateboards and scooters, the community celebrated this past weekend Alberta Culture Days in a variety of ways.

The Sundre & District Museum kicked things off on Friday evening with a live, outdoor performance by country musician Tim Hus and his band.

The museum also hosted throughout the rest of the weekend an outdoor crafts and local food market, a pie auction, as well as pioneer heritage demonstrations at the historical village.   

Over at the Sundre Municipal Library, original plans to host musical performances by The Bergen Strings as well as Hither & Yon inside the facility were as a result of recently reimposed COVID-19 restrictions adjusted to happen out on the parking lot in front of the building.

Several members of Sundre Creative Arts also participated by offering live demonstrations of their craft while the bands performed.

And over at the Sundre Skatepark, the Sundre & District Chamber of Commerce made arrangements to have a photographer on-site so a wide range of ages — from tykes and teenagers to young adults — had the option to have their picture taken while doing some tricks on their skateboards, scooters, or BMX bikes.

Additionally, the chamber coordinated with local eateries to encourage them to pick a specialty dish that shines a spotlight on their cultural heritage at a reduced price to entice people to try some unique recipes.
