Nestled on three acres of land in the heart of the majestic Canadian Rocky Mountains, the Radisson Hotel and Conference Centre in Canmore offers an ideal location for this year’s festival. This hotel is only about 20 minutes from the town of Banff, 60 minutes from the outskirts of Calgary, and in close proximity to some of the best attractions and activities the area has to offer. Enjoy golfing, sightseeing, hiking, white water rafting, horseback riding, biking, shopping, observing wildlife or just relaxing.
Canmore lies nestled along the banks of the Bow River in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. It is close to Banff and Kananaskis Country. Chosen as the site of the Nordic ski events (Canmore Nordic Center) for the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics, Canmore began attracting international attention as a major tourist destination. It has sustainable growth with a small town feel. There are several walking and cycling trails leading to the downtown core.
Banff National Park was established in 1885 as Canada’s first national park and third in the world. The park was awarded a UNESCO World Heritage Site designation in 1984. Some describe it as “paradise”…“heaven on earth”…“a place where God lingered during creation.” The park and town site offers rugged beauty, unspoiled landscapes and pristine mountain ranges. You will be hard pressed to find a finer balance of unspoiled wilderness and refined amenities. Experience an unrivaled alpine escape at “The World’s Finest National Park.” You can also drink in nature’s wonder at Lake Louise—one of the Canadian Rockies’ most beloved destinations, with turquoise waters sparkling underneath the towering Victoria Glacier. Enjoy days beyond compare in the unspoiled beauty that the area can offer.
