The Bison Festival

Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta
2017-08-19 To 2017-08-19 MST

Bison were nearly lost from North America. But by the early 20th century, bison purchased from Montana and brought to Elk Island National Park began to slowly re-build their numbers. Today nearly every plains bison you see in southern Canada, whether in conservation or domestic herds, had an ancestor in Elk Island National Park. That's something to celebrate! Join us for this sensory festival celebrating all things bison, from conservation, to culture, to cuisine.
