Great Summer Activities in Canmore

The mountain town of Canmore comes to life every summer with a wide variety of festivals, cultural events and outdoor activities for all ages.  Don’t hesitate to ask our friendly staff about any of the exciting events happening about town.  Here are a few great upcoming events you won’t want to miss.

Live Improv Night

The last time this event happened many in the sold out crowd had tears running down their face.  This Thursday July 17 from 7-9:30pm join some of Canmore’s most talented comedians on stage at the Good Earth Café.  The gang at the Canmore Improv Association has been working hard to perfect their live show over the past few months.  Guaranteed laughs and good-times will be had at this event.

Folk Festival

The Canmore Folk Music Festival is a legendary summer event and the longest running festival of its kind in Alberta.  Over the August long weekend, 18 performers including the Cowboy Junkies, De Temps Antan, Dave Gunning and the Danny Michel Trio will give memorable performances in the stunning outdoor venue of Centennial Park.  What could be better than great music set against the backdrop of majestic Rocky Mountain scenery?

One of the central mandates of the festival is “family friendliness.”  Reflecting this vision is a free children’s concert on Saturday afternoon, an extensive kids area with crafts, puppets, bouncy castles and a climbing wall and an alcohol-free policy.

Kananaskis Country Parks Day

Come out to the Willow Rock Campground, 25 km. east of Canmore on Highway 1 to mark Parks Day, Canada’s celebration of our national parks.  This free event includes a BBQ lunch, lessons on how to properly use bear spray, outdoor games, a chance to interact with live birds of prey, and tips on how to identify species of live mushrooms.  Note: RCMP will be dressed in their red serge at this event!
