Hop aboard the Oh, Canada bus and see the whole show. More details at www.ohcanadayyc.com
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.
