Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Lois Mitchell invites everyone to join her in a time-honoured holiday tradition at one of the province’s great historic buildings.
The doors to Government House will be open to the public from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm on Wednesday, January 1 for the annual New Year's Day levee. Reservations/tickets are not required and all are welcome.
Government House is located at 12845 - 102 Avenue, Edmonton. Free parking is available on the grounds. The House is wheelchair accessible from the west side of the building.
The levee is a family-friendly event. Guests will have the opportunity to meet and have a photo taken with Lieutenant Governor Mitchell, His Honour, Doug Mitchell and members of the traditional Vice-Regal Escort, which is comprised of senior officers from the Canadian Forces, RCMP and Edmonton Police Service.
The levee is also an opportunity to take in the Government House architecture and art collections, enjoy music and light refreshments, and write a postcard of thanks and encouragement to Canadian Forces members serving overseas.
