Introduction The Calgary Maple Festival des Sucres is produced by the Association canadienne-française de l’Alberta, Calgary chapter (ACFA Calgary), a non-profit organization whose mandate is to promote the interests and ensure the holistic development of the Francophone community. Inaugurated in 2002, the Calgary Maple Festival des Sucres de Calgary is an annual winter event held since 2016 at Heritage Park and celebrates the French Canadian, Métis and First Nations cultures, their traditions and stories, while offering a memorable cultural experience in French.
Heritage Park, with its peaceful setting, its large heated outdoor tent and its existing facilities will be an ideal place to host the event and the festival goers. www.heritagepark.ca/
The Mission of Heritage Park is to connect people with the settlement of Western Canada. The park shares the stories of the early pioneers who immigrated to the area from all over the world in hopes of making a new life out west. Along with an entrepreneurial spirit, they brought many of their own traditions, both of which have helped shape our identity as Western Canadians.
The vision of Heritage Park is to preserve and share the heritage of Western Canada.
Thus, a partnership with the Francophonie-Calgary in the production of the Calgary Maple Festival des Sucres, aligns perfectly with the mission and the vision of Heritage Park, the new host of the Maple Festival.
