Alberta Culture Days to Envelop Stettler

Updated: Aug 25, 2022 August 24, 2022 5:00pm

In September, we celebrate Alberta Culture Days, and Stettler is gearing up to celebrate the 4th Annual Alberta Culture Days at several locations throughout town. Here are a few highlights to be found at the Stettler Public Library.

The Stettler Public Library is privileged to welcome award-winning author Richard Van Camp on Wednesday, September 14th at 6:30 pm. Richard is a proud Tlicho Dene from Fort Smith, NWT and lives in Edmonton (Treaty 6 Territory) with his family. He is a best-selling author of 26 books, and his novel, The Lesser Blessed, is now a feature film with First Generation Films and is available on CBC Gem for free. As you can see, Richard is a very accomplished man, and he will be sharing his wisdom on reclaiming your family medicines. He will join us at the Library via Zoom, and I really don’t want you to miss this. I had the privilege of listening to Richard speak recently, and he is one of the most entertaining and vibrant speakers that I have heard in a long time. I’m sure that you will enjoy his presentation. Readers can find Richard’s books here at the Stettler Public Library or through other Parkland libraries (

But Richard’s Zoom visit is just a tiny bit of what you can find throughout Stettler in September. Cooking classes, a paint night, a genealogy workshop, a sketching class, a chance to create art with clay, a pysanky workshop, and a Battle of the Borscht! That are just some of the incredible events that are taking place during Culture Days in Stettler. Check out Stettler’s Alberta Culture Days on the web ( to see a full list of happenings during September; remember to check regularly because events are being added all the time.
