Culture Days at Government House

Since 2010 the Government House has partnered in Alberta Culture Days. We look forward to doing so again in 2016.

New Year's Day Levee with the Lieutenant Governor of Alberta

Each year, the Lieutenant Governor and her/his spouse host the New Year’s Day Levee at Government House.

The New Year’s Day Levee is a tradition in Canada dating back to the 1600s. It is based on an older tradition in Europe that saw subjects visit the monarch to pay their respects and pledge allegiance. Today, the Levee at Government House is a chance for Albertans of all ages to meet the Queen’s representative in a relaxed social setting.

Levee guests can enjoy light refreshments, tour Government House, send a postcard to Canadian troops serving overseas, and join in celebrating the start of a new year. The event is free of charge and advance booking is not required. Free parking is available.
