As the MAG is in a City-owned facility, we are adhering to City of Red Deer policy and taking part in the provincial Restrictions Exemption Program. Visitors aged 12 and older will need to provide proof of vaccination, proof of vaccination exemption, or proof of a negative test result. View our Calendar of Events for What's On this January!


“Our program has an expressive art focus: where little art experience can have wonderful outcomes.”

Effective January 2022, MAGsparks runs from 1-2:30 pm on Mondays only.

*please note: MAGsparks takes a break for the entire month of December each year.
