The Growing Kneehill 2020 Country Market & Long Table Dinner focuses on strengthening and supporting the growth of business diversity in Kneehill County and the surrounding area. This event will take place on August 14 & 15, 2020 at Horseshoe Canyon, tying into the popular Alberta Open Farm Days weekend and concluding Alberta Local Food Week.
The whole event is tailored to promote local business, agri-tourism, and tourism, and assist in expanding market access and promotion through networking and exposure. The event also provides thousands of visitors and residents an opportunity to sample all that Kneehill County and the surrounding area has to offer.
The event is located just off of Highway 9, 15 minutes west of Drumheller and a little over 1-hour northeast of Calgary, at the spectacular Horseshoe Canyon, which sees hundreds of thousands of visitors each year taking in the breathtaking views of this natural wonder. Last year over 2,300 people visited the Canyon on our event day, and we expect those numbers to grow even more in 2020.
The Country Market includes local vendors showcasing agricultural and artisan products grown or created in Kneehill County and the surrounding region, as well as agriculture info groups, local societies, and tourism operators from the area. This year’s market will run from 10 am to 3 pm on Saturday, August 15.
