Temporary closure of Lougheed House

March 16, 2020

In light of recent developments with the COVID-19 pandemic, the recently declared City of Calgary state of local emergency, as well as recommendations from Alberta Health Services on the best methods to slow the spread of the virus, we have made the decision to temporarily close our entire facility - Lougheed House, the restaurant and our Shop - effective immediately and until further notice.

All of our Lougheed House scheduled programs and events are cancelled or postponed until further notice.  Weddings and private events will be subject to the social gatherings direction given by Alberta Health Services. We will work with all weddings and events affected by those notices on an individual basis with a focus of two months out.

This decision is in the best interests of our staff, volunteers, patrons and community.

Our grounds and gardens remain open and accessible, as always.

House staff will continue to work virtually and will remain available to answer your questions and plan future weddings and private events. To contact us, please email and your email will be forwarded to the appropriate person.

Thank you for your understanding. As Lougheed House is a non-profit registered charity, the ongoing support of our community is vital to our financial viability and so we hope our supporters and patrons choose not to cancel their upcoming events and patronage, but rather to postpone until a later date.

As the COVID-19 pandemic changes rapidly, please watch our website and social media feeds for future updates about when we will reopen.

We are doing what we can to slow the transmission of COVID-19. We encourage you to do the same and we look forward to welcoming you back to our House in the future.

If you have questions about COVID-19 and actions you should take to safeguard your own health and the health of others, please refer to Alberta Health Services including this online self-assessment tool that will tell you if you need to get tested for COVID-19.
