Chinook Country Historical Society (CCHS) is pleased to present the 26th annual Historic Calgary Week.


Join us as we celebrate the rich history, culture and community of Calgary and area with more than 60 events over 11 days - Friday, July 22 to Monday, August 1.   
 
Enjoy neighbourhood concerts, walks, talks, and explore museums, heritage buildings, cemeteries, parks, libraries and archives.
 
As we celebrate learning, come discover the leaders and visionaries who contributed to the dynamic history of Calgary. Join us as we honour a partner in learning, the Calgary Public Library, and Annie Davidson, who was instrumental in the creation and funding of the city’s first library. Based on our recent publication, In The Footsteps of Giants, we present a special program to introduce new Canadians to our history.
 
All events are open to the public and are free of charge with one exception. Donations are gratefully appreciated.
 
Complete the historical crossword puzzle in the Calgary Herald and discover Calgary’s historical treasures during the "History Hunt" challenge.
