Servus Credit Union presents

Family Day at the MAG

Join us on Family Day for an afternoon of free fun that will suit everyone!

February 19, 2024 from 1-4 pm

Join us at the museum on Family Day to play some games, help weave together our igloo, colour your entry into our all ages colouring contest, and create your very own cyanotype!

Pick out some winter-themed props and get your photo taken in On the Mark Production’s Photo Bomb Photo Booth, then grab a cookie and get crafty to turn it into your own button.

See our current exhibits Louie Palu: Distant Early Warning and Grace Wirzba’s Pretend Foraging in Sleeved Blankets while listening to live music courtesy of Melody Stang who will be performing in our Remarkable Red Deer gallery space.

Thanks to the support of Servus Credit Union, Family Day at the MAG is a free to attend community event that you won’t want to miss!

Showtimes | 1:30 pm & 2:45 pm

Melody Stang is a multi-faceted musician and performer, collecting stage time with a variety of musical pursuits and projects. Captivating audiences with a balanced blend of ballads and heavy-hitting strums, she will pull at your heartstrings while you’re stomping your feet. The honest and charming banter seamlessly woven between songs threads the needle between heartbreak and hilarity.

Spinning life’s stories into well-crafted lyrics, the songs are bound by catchy melodies and clever chords. While undoubtedly a singer, her downbeat is on songwriter with musical idols like Joni Mitchell and Fleetwood Mac.
