It will begin at 12 pm with an Elder blessing and smudge ceremony, followed by remarks from speakers and dignitary acknowledgements.

The theme of the event is “Blossom & Bloom,” inspired by the crocus. It has a special meaning for the Tsuut’ina Nation, as it marks the end of winter and a time for a new life cycle. Chief Roy Whitney of Tsuut’ina Nation shares, “For nearly five decades, attracting business to the Tsuut’ina Nation has been a top priority for our community. Our longstanding dream of developing a world-class project on our Nation’s lands has now become a reality. The grand opening of The Shops at Buffalo Run marks the successful completion of the initial phase of this endeavour, filling Tsuut’ina with immense pride.”

This event is free and promises to be a bright and cheerful celebration. Come enjoy the party, support The Shops of Buffalo Run, and enjoy a springtime afternoon of family fun!
