Canmore Winter Carnival

Location: Canmore

January 31, 2014 - February 23, 2014

The Canmore Winter Carnival is a celebration of the season and a popular community tradition for more than 20 years. The 2014 event is the biggest and best yet with a record breaking 24 days of events including ice carving, snow sculpting and the return of Snow Tracks on Main Street and the popular Kid ‘n’ Mutt races.

This year the Winter Carnival not only coincides with the Alberta Winter Games, but also the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. The Canmore Civic Centre Plaza will turn into an Athlete’s Village featuring food vendors, activities and a giant TV screen broadcasting the Olympics so we can cheer on all the Canmore-based athletes.

Volunteer for the Carnival here.
