The Alberta Summer Games began as a government initiative for amateur sport, providing an opportunity for all Albertans to participate.  The first Alberta Summer Games were held in Calgary in 1974; since then the Games have been hosted in different communities throughout the province every two years. Information from the most recent Alberta Summer Games (2023) is available in the sections below.

The next Alberta Summer Games will be held in July 2026 in Strathcona County. For more information, visit the Alberta Sport website.
