Father’s Day Weekend in Banff!



It’s time to celebrate everything that is great about your Dad, so what better way than biking, BBQ’s and live music all on the doorstep of your hotel in Banff.

Banff Bike Fest Thursday June 14th – Sunday June 17th
Head to your hotel in Banff this weekend to see 500 riders put through their paces through a series of gruelling trials around Banff National Park. With events around Banff townsite and along the Trans-Canada Highway to Lake Louise, you can secure the best spectator spot as you cheer on the riders.

Saturday will see the fun side of the event with the Cruiser Criterium and the Little Cirt event.

Cruiser Criterium: Ever seen a gingerbread man cruising on a low rider? You may just get your chance if you head down to Banff Avenue this Saturday afternoon.

The fancy dress will be out in force as the 5th annual Cruiser Crit fun-race takes place. See locals and tourists alike don their favourite fancy dress outfits to make the 1km dash down Banff Avenue in this fun event. Or why not enter yourself! Get your Dad in his best 70’s outfit (from his disco days) and cruise down Banff Avenue in style!
