Family Events & Festivals…….?

As if jaw dropping scenery, friendly locals and Banff's rich heritage wasn't enough; Banffites go a long way to make your stay spectacular.

With ongoing events, festivals and activities throughout the year, you are spoilt for choice on your next vacation to the Rockies!  To make things easier, Banff Lake Louise Tourism has just unveiled their new and easy to use events calendar so you can plan your next trip with ease. Here are a few upcoming event highlights:

Blitz Snowshoe Fun Run
Where - Mt. Norquay       When – March 3rd 10am      Cost – FREE          
Enjoy the beautiful scenery from outside your hotel in Banff with the Blitz Snowshoe Fun Run! An event for all ages and abilities, you can enter either the 5 or 10km course or choose to cheer from the side lines.

Lake Louise Loppet
Where – Chateau Lake Louise    When – March 4th 11am-4pm  Cost - FREE
Now into its 40th year, this annual event attracts tiny tots to national ski racers for this fantastic (and often hilarious event).

Hot chocolate is optional but highly recommended.
