Equinox Vigil – Calgary
September 22, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Inspired by both ancient and contemporary traditions from around the globe, Equinox Vigil is a creative, respectful evening to honour the deceased and celebrate the natural cycle of Life and Death itself.
Each year on the autumn equinox, people of all ages and beliefs gather in historic Union Cemetery. There, surrounded by fresh flowers, fluttering prayer flags and glowing lanterns, they join members of Calgary’s vibrant arts community in creating bittersweet rituals of remembrance and reflection.
Equinox Vigil is a free, family-friendly and non-denominational sacred event. We invite all Calgarians to join us for this unique and memorable cultural experience.
