Shelter Me! Party in the Park is a family fun event, with the main message of encouraging inclusiveness in the Galt Gardens Park. It is an opportunity for all community members to come together and learn more about homelessness and issues around homelessness (addiction, poverty, housing availability, mental health, etc). We offer many family friendly activities, as well as live entertainment and an opportunity to learn from local agencies about resources provided to people who live in homelessness, as well as other resources available to individuals and families in our community! The entire event is FREE of charge, with exception to a concession that will be serving hot dogs, chips, and pop for $1 each.

This event is organized by McMan Lethbridge, and graciously supported and sponsored by City of Lethbridge - Heart of Our City. Amnesty Lethbridge will also be supporting us with the face painting station, and have been supporters of our event since the beginning!
