Join us on the last Thursday of the month for History Happenings; a new series of eight pop-up parties fuelled by entertainment and exploration. Each Happening features a completely different immersive experience created in partnership with our community collaborators.
Bring your friends to enjoy these interactive urban social events that will ensure you build a personal connection with our shared history and culture.
Each Happening’s dynamic, free-flowing schedule means you can drop by at any time during the event.

Métis: Exploring Contemporary Legacies
Experience how the impacts of colonialism are complex and far-reaching, and still largely felt in the 21st century. This evening explores all the different directions Métis people went, based on their occupational profile and the effects that had on their own culture and shared identity.
October 31 - 5:30 - 9:30pm
All Hallows Eve
If you love Halloween, then you have the Victorians to thank. From the sharing of ghostly prose, to elaborate superstitions and classic party games, they knew how to celebrate. Whether you want to have your fortune told, or see who among your friends is the most steadfast in their convictions, this evening is designed to raise more than a few hairs.
November 28 - 5:30 - 9:30pm
Deck the Holidays
launch your Holiday season by bringing your friends and family to Lougheed House to enjoy the best that Christmas has to offer. Learn how to create classic or contemporary handmade Christmas decorations, have a photo taken with Santa or maybe build a toy from scratch, just like Santa’s Elves.
