EVENTS AT THE MUSEUM
February WINTER FEST
Each year the Sundre Museum celebrates our local artists and artisans over a two day period during the family day long weekend. We have had much success with the ice sculptures, youth activities, an art show and sale, docent tours, educational programs and our winter survival competition!

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. In past years, more than 37,000 museums participated in the event in about 158 countries and territories.

October 31st HAUNTED VILLAGE
Mr. Ryan Beck began the tradition of an indoor haunted house while teaching here at the Sundre High School. Working with the leadership club he and his students organized this annual event for years. When Mr. Beck was diagnosed with cancer all of the halloween materials he accumulated over the years were donated to us. In 2020 we hosted our first ever haunted village with the help of Donovan Beck. It was very successful and we hope to offer this spooky event again.
December SUNDRE SNOW FEST
The 2021 photos with Santa and Mrs Claus were a success.
