Tomorrow is Canada Day and what better way to enjoy our country then visiting one of our amazing National Parks? All National Parks are offering free entry on July 01, which is a great incentive for you to come and explore everything Banff National Park has to offer. There is a free Parks Canada Pancake Breakfast at Canada place, Sidewalk Art outside of the Whyte Museum, the Parade starts at 5pm on Banff Avenue and the fireworks are scheduled for 11pm. The best view to watch the fireworks is Central Park. The complete schedule for July 01 in Banff can be viewed at

Another opportunity to visit Banff National Park is on July 16; Parks Day. All National Parks are again offering complimentary entry and Banff has some special activities at the Banff Park Museum Historic Site from 11:30am - 5pm. There is an outdoor festival of music, theatre, exhibits and most importantly...birthday cake.

Hope you are able to take advantage of the July 01 and July 16 free entry into Canada's National Parks and Banff Aspen Lodge still has guestrooms left for July 16 if you are in town!

Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra in Banff

This September the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra will be playing an outdoor concert in Banff. It is taking place on the afternoon of September 17 at the Banff Centre, in the newly renovated Shaw Amphitheatre.

Imagine relaxing in the Rockies, enjoying our amazing views and listening to Beethoven's "Symphony No. 6". The Orchestra is led by Melanie Leonard and this program features one of Banff's own, Shauna Rolston. Shauna has been playing the cello since her second birthday, when her father gave her a customized cello that was one-eighth the size of a regular cello.

Special packages are available for the weekend including a pre-show reception, VIP seating and a post-show dinner. Tickets are $49 for adults and $45 for senior/students. Call the Banff Centre Box Office at 1-800-413-8368 to reserve your tickets.
