“On behalf of our community, I want to thank and welcome the 2,500 athletes, coaches and referees along with the many spectators to our northern city for a weekend celebrating competition and camaraderie at the 2024 Alberta Winter Games.

We’re thrilled to have been chosen as the destination for this year’s Games and to showcase the warmth and hospitality of our city. Grande Prairie has an established history of being an incredible games host and we're proud to bring athletes from every corner of Alberta here to compete, make friendships and create lasting memories.

I encourage everybody to come out this Family Day long weekend and check out your favorite winter sports that are taking place at various facilities and venues, and even explore something new with 17 different events to choose from! Event information and tickets are available at 2024awg.com.

I also want to highlight our community for stepping up and supporting the Alberta Winter Games; numerous local businesses, organizations and over 1500 volunteers are contributing to making this event a great success.

Our City recreational facilities are going to be bustling this weekend, so make sure to stay tuned to cityofgp.com for information about schedule changes during the Alberta Winter Games.

Let’s have a great Games filled with memorable moments, new friendships and outstanding achievements. Good luck to all the young athletes participating!”
