Twin Holy Birthdays Celebrations

The Twin Holy Birthdays of the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh span the 48 hours from sunset on Friday, October 20, 2017, through Saturday to sunset on Sunday, October 22. Sunset in Calgary is just after 6:30 pm on those days. While most celebrations will be held during this time, many may be held in the days and weeks before or after.

We commemorate the 200th Anniversary of the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh this year as a part of the celebrations! There will be numerous small and large events around Calgary, including a major gala at the Mount Royal University’s Bella Concert Hall. See this page to get your ticket!

Below you will find other events listed, along with various ideas for celebrating these two holy days! (Dates shown below are between October 20 and 22, 2017 unless otherwise noted.)
