For over 35 years the Legislative Assembly has celebrated the holiday season by lighting up the Legislature grounds and featuring festive musical performances in the Legislature rotunda. 

Celebrate the Season will run from December 2 to 17 with performances in the Alberta Legislature rotunda on Fridays at noon and 6:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 6:30 p.m. On December 10 at 4 p.m., there will be a special outdoor performance by The Brasstactics at the North Amphitheatre. All performances are free to attend. Visit the Assembly website for the performance schedule and more.

On Thursday, December 8 at 4:45 p.m. the Honourable Nathan Cooper, Speaker of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta, will welcome Her Honour, the Honourable Salma Lakhani, AOE B.Sc., LLD (hon), Lieutenant Governor of Alberta, the Honourable Danielle Smith, Premier of Alberta, Elder Bert Auger, and other special guests to the Legislature Building to join in the time-honoured tradition of lighting up the Legislature Grounds. Afterward, everyone is invited to enjoy a musical performance by the Kings Alumni and Community Chorus. Free hot chocolate will be available while supplies last.

Throughout the season, while enjoying the lights and musical performances, visitors are also invited on Saturdays from noon to 3 p.m. to take a tour of the Legislature Building to learn more about the history of democracy and the parliamentary system in Alberta.
