This year the Feast in Alberta will be located in the heart of Alberta cattle country and the Cowboy Trail in Cochrane. Cochrane is nestled between Calgary and Banff and is a recreation playground for families, adventure enthusiasts and those seeking rest and relaxation in a beautiful natural setting. If you wish to experience the Rocky Mountains and the town of Banff, it is only a one-hour drive to Banff, making it an easy afternoon trip after services.
Cochrane has something for everyone, from quad rentals, to hiking through original ranch country, to spending the day enjoying quaint shops, boutiques, dining establishments and the most famous ice cream in Alberta. You can also spend the afternoon visiting the galleries, enjoying the talents of a number of recognized artisans, musicians and writers that call Cochrane home.
Cochrane combines a proud western heritage with spectacular vistas of the rolling foothills and majestic Rocky Mountains, with all the modern conveniences required for a great Feast.
For Feastgoers who wish to spend time in the city of Calgary, it is only a 20-minute drive from the Feast site.
Calgary sights to see include the famous Calgary Zoo, Heritage Park with its historic buildings and car museum, the world class Glenbow Museum, the Telus Science Center and of course the shopping. Calaway Park will be open Oct. 8-9 for those that need the adrenaline rush.
