Sien Lok Society's Past Events

Canada Day Fireworks in Chinatown in Sien Lok Park

It was Sien Lok's 2nd year celebrating Canada Day at Sien Lok Park Many Calgarians and tourists came out to enjoy the festivities. At the park, there was Tai Chi, Multicultural Entertainment. Sien Lok had a concession stand offering snacks, beverages and Sien Lok bags. Our Face Painter, Jayne was a big hit for the kids! Thank you to all the volunteers that helped out that day. The event ended with spectacular fireworks at the Park. The Seniors and VIPs enjoyed the fireworks in our private seating area. Canada Day at Sien Lok Park was a success and we look forward to making it bigger and better next year as it will be Canada's 150th birthday. If you would like to volunteer or to donate, please contact us at info@sienlok.org.

Casino

The two day fundraising casino event was held in July, 2016. Special thanks to all the volunteers that came out to help out at the Cash Casino. The funds raised will be used to fund Community Support, Sponsorships, School Bursaries and Awards, Sien Lok Park and the Calgary Chinatown Projects. If you would like to volunteer for our next casino, please email us at info@sienlok.org.

Calgary Chinatown Walking Tour App


At the AGM, we also soft-launched our very innovative mobile multimedia Calgary Chinatown walking tour app. Involving thousands of hours of work, developed over the past year, with many options for exciting expansion of content and languages, version 1.0 of the Sien Lok app provides several 20 minute self-guided tours of Calgary’s Chinatown and Sien Lok Park for visitors to enjoy and learn about Canadian Chinese history. With tours available in English, Mandarin and Cantonese, the Sien Lok app continues our mission of preserving and promoting Canadian Chinese culture.

The app was one of the Society’s major uses of casino funds and represents a great way to encourage pedestrian traffic throughout Chinatown and Sien Lok Park.

With a hard public launch planned for Chinese New Year and additional publicity for the app for Canada Day 2016, we expect great things for Chinatown and Sien Lok Park. We also are spearheading the expansion of our app with other groups to build out the app into an entire city guide complete with participation from municipal, multicultural, and tourism groups as part of a larger cultural initiative for the city.

To see the app in action, visit: http://sienlok.org/app or find it on the Google Play store and Apple Store.
