The City of Calgary helps citizens honour loved ones buried in City cemeteries through several annual special events.
Each year around Mother's Day, Calgary Cemeteries gives away a free chrysanthemum flower to anyone who would like to remember a Mother interred in a municipal cemetery. More information.
Each year around Father’s Day Calgary Cemeteries gives away a free daisy flower to anyone who would like to remember a Father buried in a City cemetery. More information.
Remembrance Day ceremonies
Calgary Cemeteries provides space for annual Remembrance Day ceremonies in select cemeteries. Information regarding these ceremonies will be posted closer to Remembrance Day.
The City understands that the holiday season can be a very difficult time as you remember those who have passed on. Therefore starting December 1 each year, we encourage you to reflect upon happy memories by placing a personal ornament or memento upon one of our holiday trees. More information.
