A Tribute To Those
Who Served And
Died For Our

Over 3500 crosses are placed along Calgary’s Memorial Drive from November 1-11 each year. Each cross memorializes an individual soldier from Southern Alberta who made the ultimate sacrifice during active duty protecting our country.

Welcome to the Field of Crosses' 11 DAYS OF REMEMBRANCE

Our mission is to create awareness that our freedom did not come without a price and to honour the sacrifice of those Southern Albertans who for our free tomorrow gave their today.

There is a park reserved along Calgary’s Memorial Drive for 3500 white crosses displayed annually during the “11 Days of Remembrance” November 1st to November 11th.

Hundreds of Calgarians laid poppies on small wooden crosses in the Field of Crosses on Monday, to honour those who lost their lives fighting for Canadian freedom. Poems and prayers were recited for the crowd, wreaths were laid and the Cantare Children’s Choir led the attendees in songs of remembrance and appreciation.
