Events & Festivals

Plant an Albertan outside long enough and a festival is guaranteed to pop up. • Winter: SnowDays, a month-long festival in Banff and Lake Louise, celebrates the depths of winter. The mountain towns host ice carving and snow sculpting, special exhibitions and even competitive cardboard sled racing. • Offbeat: In Calgary, Beakerhead is an unpredictable mash-up of science, technology, art and engineering. Prepare for fire, controlled explosions and accidentally learning things. • Music: Pick a genre, and there’s a festival for that. Edmonton’s folk festival is legendary while Calgary goes fully indie for a week every summer. And country music? Oh, yes.

Calgary Stampede

Calgary, Alberta
2018-07-06 To 2018-07-15 MST

The Calgary Stampede is so large and so iconic it almost defies description. But in the world of all things cowboy, the 104-year-old event, held in and around Stampede Park, is the top of the mountain. So take your pick: bull riding, barrel racing and more in the world's richest, most competitive tournament-style rodeo; the world's premier chuckwagon derby, featuring 36 teams of horses and drivers; or one of Canada's largest music festivals, with five stages and 300 performers, including a slate of international country music headliners.

Wainwright, Alberta
2018-08-17 To 2018-08-18 MST

The Come By the Hills Music Festival is a unique, family friendly festival that features a wide variety of talented and award-winning artists under an amazing prairie sky. Located at the picturesque Mistahiya Retreat Centre between Vermilion and Wainwright, this former ski hill is the perfect venue to experience live music in a relaxed and friendly environment. This festival offers all the amenities of larger folk festivals, such as on-site camping, food vendors, beer/beverage tent, and top quality talent, but without the high ticket prices or long lines. The event organizers are committed to creating an intimate, laid back environment that showcases folk and country performers that shine under the open skies. The festival features a covered seating area, so attendees are comfortable no matter what the weather might bring. Day and weekend passes go on sale annually on May 15th and are available online.
