Local businesses are an essential part of the cultural and commercial fabric of our community and here at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Pocaterra Inn, we support our town’s vibrant and ever growing array of local merchants. At the upcoming Canmore Trade Fair, hosted by Shop Local Canmore, over 120 of our thriving local businesses will come together to network and show off their fine goods and services. But the event won’t just be all business: it’s a fun, “country fair” style celebration complete with food, entertainment and contests for all to participate in.
The fair takes place on May 11th and 12th at the Canmore Recreation Centreand the Canmore Golf and Curling Club. Admission is just $2. Or, if you donate 2 cans of food for the Bow Valley Food Bank at the door, you can get in for free. If you’re a local business wanting to get in on the action, exhibitor space is still available—and affordable, too. Booth selection is on a first come, first served basis, so consider booking soon to get a spot with good exposure.
Activities at the fair include quilting, egg decorating, Lego building, and more. There will be a variety of tasty breads, cupcakes and pies from JK Bakery to satisfy your hunger. And for those with a bit of competitive spirit, there will be a pie eating contest, a fastest texter contest and “diaper derby” baby races.
If you’re attending the Trade Fair and seeking cozy lodging in Canmore, consider the BEST WESTERN PLUS Pocaterra Inn, just minutes from both the rec centre and the golf club.
