Spend the day at the Legislative Assembly of Alberta and celebrate where the holiday all began! The Alberta Legislature is excited to welcome everyone back for the annual Family Day festivities on Monday, February 19, 2024. It will be a full afternoon of free, family-friendly activities spread out between two amazing venues!

Alberta Legislature Building | 10820 – 98 Avenue

Come rain, snow, or shine, you can stay warm this Family Day enjoying indoor entertainment, education, activities, and more with the Alberta Legislature. If you have never had a chance to tour the historic Legislative Assembly building, it is a great time to explore the Rotunda, see the Chamber, and connect to parliamentary democracy. On the main floor, all ages can enjoy a bit of creative fun with Zuma Crafts, and discover unique stories of adventure with special guest Métis storyteller Naomi McIlwraith and the Legislature’s own Rocky the Ram.

Queen Elizabeth II Building | 9820 – 107 Street NW

Enjoy twice the Family Day fun with even more activities and entertainment at the Legislative Assembly Visitor Centre, just a short walk north of the main Legislature building! This year’s Fun Stage line-up includes the chance to be wowed by the magic of Ron Pearson and Jay Flair, enjoy the silly antics of The Great Balanzo, see what crazy things Jojo’s Magic Circus can juggle, and dance along with the Edmonton Métis Traditional Dancers and fiddling folk music of Daniel Gervais.

While at the Visitor Centre be sure to take in the immersive 4-D short film Our People, Our Province in the Pehonan Theatre and take some time to explore the interactive Democracy Discovery Centre. For royal fans, you also won’t want to miss the Service, Ceremony and Tradition: The Diamond Jubilee Portrait in Alberta exhibit in the Borealis Gallery. Plus there will be LEGO stations set up for the kids (and kids at heart) to try their hand at building a mini Legislature building!

It’s all happening from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm on Family Day Monday and, best of all, everything is FREE.
