Growing Kneehill events in the works

IMG 2673

Multiple markets and an AG Celebration are coming to Kneehill County this summer. At the Tuesday, March 12, 2024, Council Meeting, council heard a presentation from Administration about what ideas and options have been planned so far.
“The concept of ‘Growing Kneehill’ has been an ever evolving one. Council, through the Committee of the Whole, has had considerable discussions around the purpose and intent of these events and has explored a variety of options to meet their standards and expectations of a successful event.”
Horseshoe Canyon is being cited for the first ever Horseshoe Canyon Country Market, where local agri-food and artisan businesses can gain exposure. With vendors, an agricultural information booth, fun for kids, live music and door prizes/raffles, visitors will get a full agricultural experience. There is also talk happening about Open Farm Days, a possible food market with live entertainment in Trochu.
There are two options being discussed about an AG Connection Day or AG Community Celebration where the first would have an Agricultural Learning Show, where people can learn more about where their food comes from, and the other would have an open catered dinner and entertainment. Both options will include entertainment, fun for kids and door prizes.
