Monday, May 18, Fort Calgary celebrates Mountie Day with special kids’ activities including crafts, games and face painting. Royal Canadian Mounted Police will be in attendance dressed in red serge and available for photos ops. As well, they’ll serve birthday cake to visitors at noon. A wander through the fort museum takes about an hour. The site of Calgary’s first North West Mounted Police facility also features a regular Sunday brunch.
The Officer’s Mess at Fort Calgary is available for rent for private events such as weddings. With a relatively low rental fee, it can accommodate up to 144 people for wedding service and reception needs.
