in Bragg Creek and Kananaskis
Eating ice cream is probably the most popular activity in Bragg Creek. Next comes browsing the shops. But there is a lot more to do here although not all that much of it is familiar. This is probably one of the few places where you can ride your horse into town to pick up a litre of milk. You can stroll the tree-lined streets down to the river's edge, where, if you are brave enough, you can jump in.
Bragg Creek is a popular day-trip for Calgarians. No wonder. We're located a short fourty-five minutes west, nestled among trees, in the foothills with the Rocky Mountains looming on the horizon. This is an invitation to get out and enjoy the scenery. Take a hike, lounge by Allen Bill Pond or admire Elbow Falls while you roast burgers on the fire pits provided. Jump on a horse for a guided trail ride, or mount an ATV for a motorized facsimile.
Bragg Creek is a gateway to outdoor adventure. Each year the Banded Peak Challenge, TransRockies bike race and the Bow 80 are premier mountain biking events. There are hundreds of kilometres of trails winding through the hills and valleys of the Elbow Valley for cycling and hiking. There are a number of marathon runs and we're a popular destination for bicycle road riders.
During the winter cross-country skiing, tobagganing and snowmobiling are a great way to get out and get some fun.
Everyone is welcome at the three main events during the summer. Bragg Creek Days and the Tsuu T'ina Rodeo and Pow Wow are celebrations of summer, culture and lifestyle, held at the end of July. The Chamber of Commerce Trade Show provides local business an opportunity to showcase their products and services at the end of March.
The Performing Arts group bring in musical entertainers during the winter and the pre-Christmas craft shows are popular. The BraggArts Theatre troup mount several shows each season.
