In 2017, Canada is celebrating the 150th anniversary of Confederation!
Humboldt residents have a history of providing support for community celebrations and events which included the 1967 Canadian Centennial and, more recently, events such as the 2012 National RBC Cup and Provincial Scotties Tournament of Hearts Women's Curling, the 2014 Saskatchewan Seniors Association 55+ Provincial Games and the 2016 Skate Canada Saskatchewan Provincials.
We know that support and excitement for Canada's special anniversary will be no different!
How will you celebrate?
Learn more about Canada 150 through the Government of Canada's website.
Did you know that significant events in the history of Canada happened right outside the city at the site known as Original Humboldt?
For Canada 150, new art installations will feature stories of the 460 soldier camp of the Governor Generals Horse Guards as well as Chief Whitecap of the Whitecap Dakota First Nation.
The significance of the land comes from all the stories told by the communities involved. On June 8, 2017, these stories - and more - were shared to build understanding on the past in order to plan our future ... together.
We acknowledge the financial support of the Government of Canada.
Help Alexander von Humboldt Explore
The City of Humboldt is named after Alexander von Humboldt, a German naturalist and scientist whose worldwide explorations influenced the work of Charles Darwin. However, Alexander never traveled to the Humboldt region. We want YOU to help him explore and share his adventures in 2017!
Visit the Humboldt & District Museum & Gallery's website to download a pdf of Alexander (or stop by in person to pick one up) to take with you as you explore Humboldt ... and beyond. Selected photos will be shared through the Museum & Gallery's online channels.
