Banff Culture Weekend

Banff's forth annual Banff Culture Weekend is coming up on August 6 - 8, 2010. Continue celebrating Banff's 125th birthday by visiting the park and exploring some of its most historic spots! Some highlights of the weekend are:

*Friday August 6th - Cinema Under the Stars; come down to Banff's Central Park and watch an outdoor movie in the fresh mountain air! The movie being shown is "The Edge", which was filmed in the Bow Valley; start time is dusk (approximately 10pm).

*Saturday August 7th - Banff Culture Walk; demonstrations are taking place throughout town showcasing different artists and there are events at the Banff Centre. Canada House Gallery (at 201 Bear Street) has "Dynamic Demo Day" where you can watch five artists create their pieces. My favourite part is that you are able to speak with the artists and ask questions about their work; so interesting!

*Saturday August 7th - Nakoda Family Camp; visit the Banff Indian Grounds (across from the Banff Rocky Mountain Resort when entering Banff from Highway 1) and experience family friendly activities that teach you about the First Nation's history and traditions. The thing I want to check out? The mini pow-wow ... I think that would be so incredible to be apart of.

*Sunday August 8th - Doors Open Banff; you are able to visit some of Banff's heritage homes and buildings to really experience Banff's history. I love the idea of being able to go through a house that people have lived in for over 100 years and hearing its stories. For information on Doors Open Banff, stop by the Bison Courtyard at 211 Bear Street between 1-4pm

If you have any questions in general throughout the weekend, stop by the Bison Courtyard; the designated "information hub" for the weekend~

Enjoy your time in Banff National Park and learning about how it came to be!
