Your last chance to see The Rise and Fall of Emilio Picariello is fast approaching! Join us for our final tour of this fascinating exhibit on bootlegging, corruption, and mystery at the Fort Heritage Precinct. Then, we’ll drive over to The Fort Distillery, where we’ll learn how alcohol is distilled in Alberta today, and get the chance to taste locally produced spirits. This program includes a full tour of the Rise and Fall of Emilio Picariello exhibit, a behind-the-scenes tour and tasting hosted by the Fort Distillery. Participants must provide their own transportation between locations.

Participants will meet at the Warden’s Residence (10006 – 100 Ave) on August 25th at 6pm.

Please note that everyone will be required to wear a mask and provide their own transportation for this event.

This event is now sold out! Please call 780-992-6635 to be placed on the waiting list.

"The facilities we experienced were authentic and helped us gain a genuine understanding of what it was like at the Precinct over 100 years ago."
