Alberta is the site of many Sasquatch sightings, including in Grande Prairie. The Grande Prairie Museum is inviting everyone to come learn more about the phenomenon at their new “In the Shadow of the Rockies: Alberta’s Sasquatch Stories” exhibit.
The grand opening of the exhibit takes place in the Heritage Discovery Center in Centre 2000 at 4:30 p.m. on Friday, September 28 with Sasquatch researcher Thomas Steenburg. To commemorate the opening, Steenburg is presenting a guest lecture titled “Sasquatch in Alberta” at 7:00 p.m.
A second lecture, focusing on sightings in British Columbia, is being presented by Steenburg on Saturday, September 29 at 10:30 a.m., also at the Heritage Discovery Centre.
Both events are open to the public with free admission.
A limited number of Steenburg’s newly revised book, “Sasquatch in Alberta: Bigfoot in Wild Rose Country” will be available at the events. The book features cover art by Grande Prairie artist, Tim Heimdal. More of Heidal’s art is featured throughout the exhibit.
Steenburg has been an active Sasquatch researcher since 1980. He was among the first to explore the Sasquatch mystery in Alberta and has written three books on the subject. He has appeared in countless television and movie documentaries and continues his research today from British Columbia.
The exhibit features five classic Alberta stories about the Sasquatch, facts on famous Sasquatch researchers and an exploration of Bigfoot’s presence in our culture. It is showing at the Heritage Discovery Centre until September 2019.
