EVENTS AT THE MUSEUM
February WINTER FEST
This year our annual event will look a bit different. Ice carving will be located in the Greenwood Campground adjacent the gazebo. Each ice sculpture will feature local animals! Inside the gazebo we will have an ice chair or 'thrown' and we encourage everyone to "TAKE A SELFIE". We have set up a filter on Snapchat and Instagram and want you to share your selfie with the museum and Town of Sundre. When you do your name will be entered for a free family museum pass. The ice sculptures will be ready to enjoy family day long weekend, February 13th until the ice melts. Shake things up this family day long weekend!
Since we cannot have our local art show and sale, the museum is going to create an online artist and artisan directory. If you are looking for some unique, one of a kind pieces of art look no further. Support our local artists. What kind of artists? ALL kinds! We have fine art, sculpture, fabric, metal, quilt, singer, songwriter, instrumental, and everything else under the sun. Click HERE to see who we have so far and contact the museum to have your name added. In addition, we are working with Humble Pie Productions to create a local artist / artisan marketing video.

Friday, February 16th 7pm. We are looking at making this a digital meeting. Please stay tuned as we confirm digital links. We are looking for new board members. Please don't forget to renew your membership with us. Thank you Sundre! Come see what we've been up to, join our team, volunteer and help us "Celebrate the way we were".
June INDIGENOUS PEOPLES DAY
Each year on June 21st the world comes together to celebrate the heritage, diverse cultures and outstanding achievements of First Nations, Inuit and Metis. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic there are no events planned for this year. Our museum has purchased a tipi from a local group and are excited to have it installed and blessed at a later date. We will keep you posted as we learn more.
May 18th - International Museum Day
Each year we celebrate museums! The objective of International Museum Day (IMD) is to raise awareness about the fact that, “Museums are an important means of cultural exchange, enrichment of cultures and development of mutual understanding, cooperation and peace among peoples.” Organized on 18 May each year or around this date, the events and activities planned to celebrate International Museum Day can last a day, a weekend or an entire week. IMD was celebrated for the first time 40 years ago. All around the world, more and more museums participate in International Museum Day. Last year, more than 37,000 museums participated in the event in about 158 countries and territories.
