Celebrate Neighbour Day virtually on June 20, 2020
Held annually on the third Saturday of June, Neighbour Day is a yearly celebration of Calgary’s strong community spirit. It started in 2014 in honour of the incredible support and generosity Calgarians showed after the 2013 floods. Now it’s an opportunity to connect with our neighbours, show how we care for each other and celebrate how we make Calgary a great city.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever that we connect with our neighbours, but we must remember to practice physical distancing to keep everyone safe. The City is encouraging all Calgarians to plan and host virtual events – you can even invite Mayor Nenshi or your local councillor!
Visit calgary.ca/NeighbourDay for printable tools, challenges, and ideas, like the Neighbour Day Scavenger Hunt, created in partnership with Sunalta Community Association and the Federation of Calgary Communities.
Remember to share your Neighbour Day celebrations on social media using #yycNeighbourDay for a chance to be featured on City channels. We hope you’ll join us in celebrating Neighbour Day on June 20, 2020!
