Coulee Fest

September 23, 2017 - 1:00pm - 7:00pm

You’re invited to Coulee Fest.

In celebration of our 60th anniversary, Lethbridge College invites you, your friends and your family to come back to where it all started.

Join us on Saturday, Sept. 23, for a campus celebration.

The free event on the Lethbridge College campus will feature entertainment, music, family activities, campus tours and much more, as the college pauses to celebrate its standing as Canada’s first publicly-funded community college and all of its successes since. Students, alumni, instructors and employees both past and present, as well as friends and partners who have helped to shape the college since 1957, are all invited to return to where it all began.
