Leighton Art Centre (Family Fun Calgary)

Enjoy a whole lot of Christmas cheer in Alberta’s beautiful Foothills region!

The Leighton Art Centre is featuring fine crafts and artwork by local artists in the galleries of the historic Leighton home and on the online shopping site (shop.leightoncentre.org) this November and December. This annual community-favourite sale comes in perfect time for getting a head start on purchasing seasonal gifts and getting into the Christmas spirit. Beautiful decorations, gorgeous art, and the home’s historic ambiance combine to make visiting in person a memorable part of your family’s season.

Discover over 125 talented artists and find truly unique gifts for your loved ones at this annual art sale . . . now with the additional option to shop from home (450+ extra pieces online!), with gallery pick up, local delivery, and Canadian shipping available for online purchases.

For 2020, they are staying open on Sundays right up until December 20th, to give visitors more opportunities to come in person, while still ensuring social distancing in the house.

Also new this year: reserved Early Bird Shopping! Avoid the chance of having to line up outside by purchasing a $10 ticket (1 per person, max 4 per order) in advance for a 9 – 10 am shopping slot on any Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday morning between November 5 – 15, 2020. Just 20 tickets are available for each of those nine mornings, which is equivalent to the current capacity of the house. Please visit the website for a ticket purchase link.

Free parking and free admission (donations gratefully accepted). Spectacular Rocky Mountain views included!

COVID-19 safety measures – including reduced indoor capacity, mandatory masking indoors, and provided hand sanitizer – will be in place. Please come with your own mask and be prepared to wait outside (hopefully not for long!) if they reach capacity in the house.
