Celebrate Alberta’s Natural Provincial Parks and Learn about Protecting our Watersheds at Parks Day & Creekfest!

Juno-award winning Peter Puffin’s Whale Tales will return to Fish Creek to host a concert and song writing workshop!

New this year… Songwriting Workshop with Juno Award Winner Peter Puffin! Let your natural creativity blossom and let Peter help you be inspired by the gorgeous surroundings of Calgary’s own unique Provincial Park. We’ll sample some of Peter’s award-winning techniques for helping kids write their own songs… and maybe even record the outcomes for posting on social media. Just bring yourself, and your heartfelt ideas about why do you love Fish Creek Provincial Park!


Enjoy the performance “Good Night and Good Duck” from Alberta Parks’ K-Country Interpretive Theatre!

Barrow’s Golden Eye, Private Eye, recalls the toughest case he faced while on duty in the wetlands: The Case of the Missing Mallard. Join him as he flies through waterfowl suspects on land, water and air to track down missing Mrs. Mallard. Is everyone correct to suspect fowl play?


Coyote Kids Theatre will present “A Muskrat’s Tail!

Local musician Alex Boisselle will return to Fish Creek!

Join in an outdoor yoga session, bear spray demo,  and fly fishing demonstration.

Enjoy a guided walk of the historical Glennfield area with Wayne Meikle, retired park planner and founding member of the Friends of Fish Creek.

Take part in interactive booths and activities hosted by community organizations dedicated to the environmental sustainability of our Provincial Parks, including Alberta Native Plant Council, Alberta Wilderness Association, Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society, Cows and Fish, Trout Unlimited Canada and many more. 

There will be a special visit from Boston Pizza’s Lionel, a draw for people who used Calgary Transit and refreshments available to purchase!
