If you’ve never been to Canmore during Christmas, you’re missing out on one of the most picturesque scenes in Canada.
Framed by the majestic Rocky Mountains, Canmore is an adventurist’s paradise, complete with dog sledding, horseback riding, skiing, boarding, and just about any outdoor activity you can imagine. At Christmas time, the snow-capped peaks aren’t the only things to marvel at.
Christmas in Canmore offers a myriad of activities for all types, including the Festival of Trees, a block party (complete with fire dancers, stilt walkers, and a Christmas band), concerts, arts and crafts, a gingerbread house-making workshop, outdoor movies, markets and more.
Unique events also include a dinner tour on winter bikes and late night shopping.
The popular Christmas in Canmore Block Party will kick off the month-long festival on December 4 with local musicians, hot chocolate, food, stilt walkers, fire dancers, and more. If you’re looking to warm up by the fire, outdoor Christmas movies will be aired every Sunday with feature films like How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Elf, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, and The Polar Express.
