Summer Festivals

Band playing at Canada Day 2016

Summer in Alberta can go by in the blink of an eye so be sure to mark your calendars for the fun free opportunities in our own community! Chestermere offers two amazing festivals that should be on everyone’s summer to-do list:

1. Get involved in Canada’s biggest birthday yet 

Come celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary in your own backyard! Family friendly activities will take over John Peake Park and start with a free pancake breakfast, kids’ activities (including old fashioned games and the very popular tug of war competition). There will also be wagon rides along the Lake, a book sale at the Library, dancing in the Pavilion, and excellent food vendors. Plus, don’t miss Chestermere’s biggest fireworks display ever - right on the lake!

“Come join the celebration,” says City of Chestermere Events Planner Nancie Huneault. “Together, as a community, we are going to mark this special anniversary in a spectacular way.” 

Canada Day celebrations take place at John Peake Park from 9 a.m. until dusk. www.chestermere.ca/canadaday.

2. Join the splash at Water Festival

What better way to enjoy Chestermere’s lifestyle than a festival right on the shores of our lake? The annual Water Festival embraces all that summer lake life has to offer with great activities for all ages. Guests will begin the day watching the annual wakeboard competition hosted by Water Ski Wakeboard Alberta. You can even register to brave the waves in the competition. Kids’ activities will take place in the EPCOR Kids Fun Zone, and include face painting, bouncy house fun, obstacle courses and more! The Artisan Market and food trucks will delight all the senses with great finds for your home and palate. For the 18+ crowd, wine and beer will be served at the Chestermere Lions’ Beer Gardens. Enjoy some beverages with friends in the Park until 11 p.m. Free entertainment will continue all day long with blues, rock and country tunes. The evening will conclude with an electrifying Canadian blues rock experience from headliner Kirby Sewell Band at 9 p.m. followed by fireworks.

“I can give you 150 reasons to attend these events this summer, but you only need 1: they’re free!” said Huneault. 

Water Festival begins at 9 a.m. until dusk in John Peake Park. www.chestermere.ca/waterfestival
