Canadian culture to be focus of Moose Jaw Heritage Day celebration

January 17, 2017 by  

The Western Development Museum (WDM), the Yorkton Film Festival and a group of local organizations have joined forces to host a Heritage Day celebration in Moose Jaw.

The theme for the day, which will take place at the WDM, will be “Canada 150”, and it will celebrate the nation’s diverse heritage. It will be family friendly, and has been organized to offer something for everyone, no matter their age.

An assortment of activities will take place throughout the day, including talks by guest speakers and the screening of several Canadian films. Different cultural and heritage organizations have been invited to set up a table or other display where they can share information and perhaps even an interactive hands-on activity. All of this will be offered free of charge at the museum, but those who come out will be asked to pay the regular admission price to visit the other parts of the institution. A company that prepares promotional products will be able to craft ones that can be sold as a souvenir of a day such as this.

The Heritage Day celebration will take place in Moose Jaw’s Western Development Museum on February 11th from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm. Anyone who would like to find out more, including a schedule for the day, is invited to visit the institution’s website for further details.
