Neighbour Day began in 2014 to celebrate the incredible outpouring of support and generosity neighbours demonstrated after the 2013 floods. It has evolved into an annual celebration of what makes Calgary such a great city – our strong and caring communities. Calgarians are renowned for our spirit of generosity and Neighbour Day is all about celebrating that strong community spirit. But it can be difficult to know exactly how to connect and support one another, especially during these uncertain times. Join us, with The City of Calgary, in celebrating Neighbour Day virtually this year! Here’s how we’re celebrating:
Host a virtual Neighbour Day event using video conferencing to connect with your friends, family or neighbours – and invite Mayor Nenshi or your local councillor to join you!
Decorate your yard in red and white (think balloons, lights and artwork) and leave your decorations up until Canada Day.
Participate in the City of Calgary scavenger hunt by downloading this PDF and participating).
Share your photos and videos on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram using #YYCNeighbourDay for a chance to be featured on City social media channels.
