Canmore Winter Carnival

  
February 13 to March 1, 2015

Let's celebrate winter (or should we say spring)... Canmore style! From February 13 to March 1 come out to one of the Canmore Winter Carnival events and be part of a true Canmore experience. We will keep the 2015 schedule of events quite fun, but given our current warmer temperatures we might need to make some changes. Check back often.

Registration for the Snowy Owl Kid N Mutt races is now open! Please register online at https://zone4.ca/reg.asp?id=8562.

Easier to stay informed via Facebook? We have an Arts and Events Facebook page.
