About the Mountain Festival
The Mountain Festival at the University of Alberta, coordinated by the Canadian Mountain Network (CMN), was first held in 2016. The purpose of the Festival is to celebrate mountain cultures, regions, and research thereby, bringing together mountain communities for International Mountain Day.
The Canadian Mountain Network works with partners on and off campus to plan, coordinate, and/or encourage engagement in Mountain-related events including panel discussions, film screenings, book launches, and more. The CMN also hosts a live-stream event on International Mountain Day to bring together communities holding their own International Mountain Day Celebrations.
Past Partners in Events at the University of Alberta have included the following organizations:
