Get into the Groove: Happy 50th Birthday to the MAG
Join us for Family Day as we celebrate 50 years of the Red Deer and District Museum Society with a 1970’s themed Birthday Party!
What do you wish for the MAG for the next 50 years? Write your best wishes on paper candles and add it to our cake mural. Come take a family selfie and participate in our ‘sketch party’ (sketch your favorite artifact on display), dance to 1970’s disco music, and come dressed in your favourite 1970’s fashion.
This family friendly event is free to attend. All are welcome!
Show off your creativity by entering our Family Day Colouring Contest! Download the printable PDF colouring sheet (or pick up a copy at the MAG) and return to the museum by February 20, 2023 to be entered into a draw to win a prize.
All ages are welcome (and encouraged!) to participate.
Need some inspiration for your 1970’s Event Day outfit? Have a peek at some of the popular styles of the time! Photos are from the Eaton’s Fall and Winter 1975 catalogue, which we have in the MAG’s reference library.
Thank you to our supporters
