“Any day spent with you is my favorite day.” – A.A. Milne

Join A & O: Support Services for Older Adults to celebrate Grandparents’ Day: Connecting the Generations and Celebrating Diversity event on Sunday September 11th from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm at Assiniboine Park, Lyric stage, and surrounding field. Bring the friends and family in your life for this fun filled day of intergenerational activities, exhibits and entertainment!

This event will raise awareness about ageism, reinforce the value of respect while promoting the programs and services of A & O and those of our partners. Hosting this event is an important step toward intergenerational sensitivity and understanding. A & O is grateful for the financial support provided by the Winnipeg Foundation in helping us offer this event to the community!


This event is free of charge.

There will be community resource booths, break out sessions, active living demonstrations, story telling, music, scavenger hunts, face painting, and so much more that appeal to people of all ages!
