Alberta Culture Days

Starting in the early 1900s, people came from eastern and western Europe, the United States, and other parts of Canada to make a living in the coal mining valley of the Crowsnest Pass. They brought cultural traditions with them that have made the area a hotbed of artistic and musical creativity. Culture Days showcases the vibrant culture of the Crowsnest Pass amid the breathtaking beauty of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
