Plan Your Stay

You don't have to get on a plane to enjoy world-class skiing, hiking, and mountain biking, not to mention premium dining and accommodations. It's all right here in your backyard – more than 4,000 km² of pure excitement, adventure, and stress relief. The Canmore Kananaskis area has been welcoming our neighbors from Calgary, Edmonton, and beyond since 1884, and it only takes one visit to see why they keep coming back.

Things To Do

Keeping it Green, this is an icon of some trees.

Keeping It Green

By educating our food vendors, we have eliminated Styrofoam plates and cups from the site, and a huge percentage of both hard and soft plastics. Vendors are now required to serve on compostable or recyclable dinnerware only. Our backstage hospitality staff, which feeds 450 volunteers and 250 performers and coordinators throughout the weekend, has similarly embraced the Toward Zero Waste initiative, both in how it prepares the food and how it is served.

Pub Stage

Now in its 7th year, the Pub Stage (Stage 4) can be found at Canmore Miners’ Union Hall. Stage 4 has proven to be one of our most popular venues. Doors open at 1 pm Saturday Sunday and Monday with live acts going on at 2:15pm running to 11pm Saturday and Sunday night and 10pm on Monday night. Admission is free for those with a valid festival wristband (or show ticket) For those just wanting to catch the pub music, admission is $10 Come by for lunch, grab a cold beer or glass of wine and wait for the fun to start. Check back in July for a full listing of Pub Stage acts!
