Step back in time at Canada’s largest living history museum
Escape today – Join Heritage Park as we celebrate 50 years
It all began in the summer of 1964, and over the past 50 years, Heritage Park has grown into Canada’s Largest Living History Experience. Our 50th fall season is full of colourful characters, retro rides, food and festivals, engaging exhibits, railways and so much more. This golden year is going to be one for the history books.

Chugging along with fall fun for all!
Now that autumn is in the air - we’ve got our sights set on fall fun. Our weekends are jam-packed with activities for everyone to enjoy! Heritage Park is proud to host the third annual Sharing Our Culture, a Treaty 7 Powwow on Sept.14. Watch beautiful regalia and spectacular dances to rhythmic drumming as you learn about First Nations culture. And be sure to catch a live performance of Making Treaty7, as over 20 artists breathe life into a story everyone should know.
Train enthusiasts will go ‘loco’ for Railways Days. As one of the few sites in North America with two steam locomotives, our trains take centre stage for two days on Sept. 27 and 28 with demonstrations, hands-on activities, rare rail experiences and exciting exhibits. Add on some pumpkin foodways demonstrations, a Thanksgiving dinner in the historic Wainwright Hotel, and you have the makings of a hearty harvest season of fun!
Taking Old-School to a whole new level
Who says the kids are the only one going back to class this fall? Our adult education programs can teach you how to cook on a wood fueled stove, brew your own beer with a Big Rock Brewery brew master, spin your own wool and more! Why not take your DIY skills to the next level, and master the centuries old art of home canning with us? Bring some skills back home from your visit to Calgary and make memories to last a lifetime.
An incredible escape with every visit - a different time and place where the hustle and bustle of the modern world is left behind.
No matter the season, something exciting is happening at one of Heritage Park’s numerous ticketed or special events. Find out more about all our events with the Events Calendar
