Heritage Day at the Red Deer MAG

Join us for cultural and heritage experiences.

Explore the art exhibit ‘Body Language: Reawakening Cultural Tattooing of the Northwest‘. Unleash your artistic expressions through fun activities, such as creating a unique ‘Tree of Life’ or painting a personal symbol on a rock to add to our Public Rock Art Installation.

Experience symbolism in a variety of cultural mediums: view the Indigenous tattooing exhibit, watch a local Henna Tattoo artist at work, and create artwork that embraces your personal symbols.

Enjoy old-fashioned games, guided tours of historic buildings, and light refreshments. Join us for an unforgettable Heritage Day event!
