Fest By Bike // Contest

The Canmore Folk Festival is pleased to partner with the Canmore Community Cruisers again to offer onsite secure bike parking. This makes it even more convenient and enjoyable to GO BY BIKE to Centennial Park. Enjoy the fabulous mountain scenery and local vibe as you pedal from your home or accommodations without the need to search for parking. This is the best way to travel to the Folk Festival with close by, no hassle, no cost parking awaiting your arrival.

About the contest

Did you know we’re holding a “Fest By Bike” Contest this year? Between July 21 and 28th like, comment or share contest related posts with the name of your favourite 2019 Folk Fest artist on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. The “Fest By Bike” winner will claim two weekend passes to this year’s event! The winner will be announced on Sunday before midnight.

The only catch? In order to claim the prize, the winner must ride to the festival and bring their bikes to the Canmore Community Cruisers’ Secure Bike Parking tent.

Where is parking located onsite?

After entry at the Main Gate, just walk your bike along the paved path to the fenced bike corral at the rear of Lawrence Grassi Middle School. Cruiser volunteers will put a numbered tag on your bike and give you a matching claim check. You then park your bike in the corral. For extra security, just throw on your own bike lock.

The bike corral will be supervised as follows:

Saturday: 3:30 pm – 11:30 pm

Sunday 9:30 am – 11:30 pm

Monday 9:30 am – 10:30 pm

Should the bike corral reach capacity, there are additional bike racks outside the fenced corral where you can lock up your bike.


The Canmore Folk Festival is proud to be Canmore’s first-ever bike-friendly special event (2014) and we are excited to be offering this improved secure bike parking service in partnership with the Canmore Community Cruisers!
