About Celebrating Life 2022

Celebrating Life 2022 will be an iconic event where the citizens of Calgary will have the opportunity to mourn together honouring the lives of those who are not physically with us anymore, and at the same time to celebrate our life and reflect on the immense possibilities moving forward.

Inspired by the Mexican tradition of Dia de Muertos, and the experience of Equinox Vigil, Celebrating Life 2022 will be a joyful celebration with different activities taking place virtually and in person around all four quadrants and downtown of our city where citizens of Calgary can joyfully celebrate a brilliant future as individuals and as a community.
