Spring is in full swing, and it’s a great time to visit Canmore. The trails are open for hiking and biking, the sun is shining bright and the town is alive with exciting activities and events. This month’s special events include:
Kananaskis Emergency Services Showcase | June 7
Nakiska Ski Resort
The pillar of any strong community is an emergency response team that’s always there when you need them. Anyone visiting or living in Kanaskis Country are especially lucky in this regard, having one of the province’s most experienced and well-equipped Emercency Services and Mountain Rescue squads in the province. For a chance to see their skills in action, check out the Kananaskis Emergency Services Showcase happening on Saturday, June 7 at Nakiska Ski Resort. There will be interactive demonstrations, free family fun, prize draws, a BBQ fundraiser and meet-and-greet with local rescue workers. It’s great for kids and the whole family.
Scott Woods’ Old Time Jubilee | June 20
Creekside Hall (600B 9th St, Canmore AB)
What happens when a classical violin virtuoso, trained on the instrument since age 4, picks up a fiddle and takes to the stage with an old time country band? The result is the most fun you can have with fiddle music! The Scott Woods’ band puts on a show that’s entertaining on every level, delighting audiences with humour, theatrics and really great music. Their current touring show, entitled “Old Time Jubilee” harkens back to the golden era of Canadian folk music, when legendary radio personality Don Messer got the whole country tapping their feet with his infectious fiddle music. This one-of-a-kind act visits Canmore’s Creekside Hall on Friday, June 20th. Tickets can be purchased at Canmore’s Café Books or by calling, toll-free, 1-855-726-8896. Ticket prices are as follows: Adult $25; Child $10. Children 5 & under are free.
We look forward to seeing you in Canmore this spring. When planning your trip, look tot the BEST WESTERN PLUS Pocaterra Inn & Suites for clean, modern Canbmore accommodations at competitive rates.
