ALBERTA SUMMER GAMES JULY 20-23, 2023

THE 2023 ALBERTA SUMMER GAMES

A group of dedicated volunteers have started planning to host over 2700 athletes, coaches and technical officials over 4 days in July, 2023.

Fundraising has begun to supplement the $420,000 Operating grant received from the Government of Alberta.

In August, 2021 Honourable Ron Orr, Minister of Culture awarded the 2023 Alberta Summer Games to the Towns of Okotoks and Black Diamond.

“The Alberta Summer Games are an important part of our province’s culture. The taxpayer dollars invested into local events, like the Summer Games, help to build strong communities and to support our live events and sport sectors. Okotoks and Black Diamond are dynamic communities filled with amazing people and tremendous athletics infrastructure. The warmth and vibrancy of these communities make them a perfect fit for hosting the 2023 Alberta Summer Games. ” – Ron Orr, Minister of Culture

“As the Chair of the 2023 Alberta Summer Games host society, we are looking forward to ‘rocking the games’ in the communities of Black Diamond and Okotoks” – Sandi Kennedy, chair, 2023 Alberta Summer Games Society
