Government House is located in Edmonton at 12845 - 102 Avenue in Edmonton's Glenora neighbourhood (adjacent to the old site of the Royal Alberta Museum). 

This open house-style event is family friendly and all are welcome. Young visitors will be able to take away a  small activity package. 

The levee is an opportunity to meet the Lieutenant Governor, visit historic Government House and take in its art collection, enjoy music and light refreshments and write a postcard of thanks and encouragement to Canadian Forces members serving overseas.

Free parking is available on the grounds. The House is wheelchair accessible from the west side of the building. 


The House  was the official residence of Alberta's first six Lieutenant Governors. It's now used by the Lieutenant Governor, Government of Alberta and the public sector for meetings, events and celebrations.
