Alberta Day

The City of Fort Saskatchewan will be hosting its first ever Alberta Day celebration on Saturday, September 3.

The Government of Alberta recently announced the establishment of a new annual tradition in celebration of the day the Alberta Act came into effect. The Alberta Act formally established the Province of Alberta on September 1, 1905. September 1 will be recognized in perpetuity as Alberta Day. The day will give Albertans an opportunity every year to come together in a spirit of celebration and express their pride in our province’s unique spirit, culture and heritage that connects us as Albertans.

With support from the Government of Alberta, activities for the day include:
