We have had a very eventful month to kick off the summer! June was filled with fun events and activities, so let's review some of the highlights!


Global Wellness Day-

On June 11th, we helped celebrate Global Wellness Day. Many of our Downtown Businesses participated by promoting personal wellness and the wellness of others. We appreciate all the businesses that did participate and had a great time at the yoga in the park that Saturday morning. 


LOVED vintage market-

On Saturday, June 11th, we had the LOVED vintage market at casa arts center. So many vendors came out to sell their vintage/ used clothing. Keep an eye out for the next market date so you don’t miss it!


Taste of Italia-

The Southern Alberta Ethnic Association hosted the Taste of Italia on Friday June 17th. It was an amazing event at the Multicultural Center with authentic Italian food and entertainment!


Sandwich Week-

We had plenty of downtown restaurants participate in our Downtown Sandwich Week this month. Sandwich Week was a great way to get people interested in our local restaurants by providing a giveaway entry to those who purchased a featured sandwich! Thank you to everyone who bought a sandwich and entered our giveaway, good luck!


Indigenous People’s Day-

On June 21st we celebrated the history of our Indigenous population. Sage Clan hosted an amazing tipi raising in Galt Gardens and it was great to hear the experiences of some of our Indigenous community members. 


Festival Square Grand Opening-

Festival Square is an amazing new space that has been added to Downtown. We had a very memorable grand opening with live performances, a beer garden and farmers market. We look forward to many more events, and to seeing people enjoy the space every day. 


Pride in the Park-

On June 25th we joined Lethbridge Pride Fest in celebrating our 2SLGBTQIA+ community. It was a beautiful day for the 14th annual Pride in the Park. With so many activities to be a part of, people to meet and performances to watch, we all had so much fun!
