Upcoming Events

Lights Out Mill Street

In support of Earth Hour, pubs across Alberta are joining forces to participate in a nation wide initiative called Lights Out Mill Street. Between March 13 - 25, 28 Alberta pubs will be donating funds from pints purchased to support the initiative. Earth Hour takes place March 25 and features candlelit parties that join the community in a symbolic and environmental effort.

Lights Out Mill Street is an annual fundraising campaign that coincides with Earth Hour on March 25. Launching in Eastern Canada three years ago, Mill Street has expanded the initiative to Alberta. Featuring live candlelit acoustic performances by Canadian artists, a total of 200 venues across Canada will host candlelit events including 28 new participating venues in Alberta this year including Swans, Briggs, Black Swan and more.

To kick start fundraising efforts, all participating venues will be donating 50 cents of every pint purchased within the two-week timeframe of March 13 - 25. All funds raised go directly to environmental awareness via Earth Day Canada; in just three years, Mill Street has raised over $300,000 in support of Earth Day Canada initiatives.

WHEN: Saturday March 25, 2017 8:30 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. EST

About the Hometown Heroes Award Program 
Earth Day Canada's (EDC) Hometown Heroes Award Program has become one of Canada's most prestigious environmental awards. Established in 2004, the program recognizes and celebrates environmental leaders, groups and small businesses fostering meaningful, long-term community awareness and action. Local heroes, working at a grassroots level and often with very limited resources, can make an enormous difference to the health of our planet – they deserve our recognition. Learn more at earthday.ca/hometown.

About Earth Day Canada
Celebrated every year on April 22, Earth Day is the largest environmental event in the world. Founded in 1990, Earth Day Canada is a national charity that inspires and supports people across the country to connect with nature and build resilient communities. We lead an annual Earth Day campaign in conjunction with free, year-round, award-winning programs that get people outside, interacting with the natural environment — this, in turn, fosters an intrinsically motivated, enduring commitment to stewardship and conservation.
