Alberta Culture Days

This weekend, September 27, 28 and 29 is Alberta Culture Days!  We’re supposed to celebrate arts and culture in our province!

Fairview Fine Arts Centre is inviting you to do just that: come out to the Centre and see all sorts of art in action.  And you are most welcome to try your hand at some of these artistic and cultural pursuits as well.

There is an article in the Fairview Post about what is going on at the Centre on Friday and Saturday, and below is the schedule of events (thanks, CeeBee!):

Come on out and have some fun, make something and learn something!
