What is a Levee?

Levee’s date back prior to the 17th Century and are still a celebrated tradition today in a variety of formats. The traditional and historical purpose of a Levee was for the leaders (Kings or Queens of the time) to address their nation, providing a positive outlook at the year ahead. 

Today’s Levees are held in the form of an open house. Traditionally the Lieutenant Governor’s Levee is held in the morning, whereas a Mayor’s Levee in the afternoon. The intent of this tradition is to show the government’s commitment to providing the best service for the community with a note of good cheer either on January 1, or on any day during the month of January.
