Big Blue Sky Gala – North – Postponed until November 2021 @ J.W. Marriott, Ice District, Edmonton
Nov 5 all-day

This event has been postponed until November 2021.

From north to south, east to west, Albertans have one thing in common – a love for their province, their people and their communities. Known for our friendliness, resilience, generosity and good citizenship, Albertans have a lot to be proud of.

The Alberta Cancer Foundation is thrilled to announce the Big Blue Sky Gala – an event that celebrates all things Albertan, while providing support to our friends, family and neighbors facing cancer in our province. This inaugural event taking place in both Calgary and Edmonton will celebrate Alberta’s land, history, and diverse cultures in everything from music, art, sport and cuisine. From its rich landscapes, golden grain fields and clear blue skies, Alberta is a beautiful place and we can’t wait to showcase all it has to offer and all we can accomplish, together.
