Flip your powdered wig and assume the most aristocratic of airs at the best art party in town. We're kicking off the summer season by basking in the grandeur of the Masterworks exhibition and transforming Glenbow into the court of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. There will be champagne, fine wine and other sumptuous treats. And, of course, loads of top-notch entertainment and activities: have your own royal portrait commissioned by a local artist before hitting the dance floor to the majestic sounds of our guest musicians and DJ. Join us as we celebrate summer in the highest of style.
Three times a year, Glenbow keeps the doors open after dark and turns the music up for the best art party in town. Launch Parties make the art on display come to life in new ways and give you a different museum experience than you would get during normal daytime hours. Launch parties are open to everyone and are pay-what-you-can admission.
Glenbow's Launch Parties began in 2009 and have since become one of Calgary's favourite see-and-be-seen events. The party is a great way to celebrate the opening of feature exhibitions, but it's also a curated event where we invite local musicians and performers from Calgary's creative community to entertain the crowd.
