Winterfest is coming!
This year, it will look different.
Saturday to Monday, Feb 13 - 15, 2021
Come to see a beautiful exhibit of ice sculptures.
Come to see the stunning Sundre & District Museum and its famous Pioneer Village.
And come to Explore Sundre!
Watch for the release of How-To Survival Videos, videos promoting local artists and artisans, and other content about the Sundre and west country area.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the Farmer's Market, Wagon Rides, Bannock and Mountain Survivalist Competition have been cancelled.
This year, a new digital component is being introduced, but we need YOUR help.
We are seeking any and all local ARTISTS (all mediums; including canvas, sculpture, textile, photographic, tattoo, metal, wood, etc.) and ARTISANS to share their bio, photo, and some art with us. We will be working with Humble Pie Productions to create a local marketing video that showcases the amazing talent inside our community. This video will be posted on the Winterfest website, the museum website and will have links where people can access the art to hopefully purchase and support the creators.
We would also like to thank the Government of Canada Ministry of Culture and Heritage for the grant that makes this possible.
For additional information, call, direct message through social media, or email the museum director Monday to Thursday between 9am-3pm at 403.638.3233 - or firstname.lastname@example.org
