Event description

Description

Kneehill County is a forward thinking and progressive municipality pushing the boundaries of innovation, agriculture initiatives, tourism, and development. In highlighting these assets the County has to offer, we are hosting a Culinary Tour on July 26, 2017.

The tour will bring together key partners in agriculture, tourism and area businesses. We are building partnerships that will both strengthen and grow current and future operations. We are shining a spot light on culinary as a value chain as the tour winds its way from farm to table. The experience will be all encompassing as we highlight tourism experiences and development opportunities throughout Kneehill County.


The Tour

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. on the morning of July 26 at Horseshoe Canyon located on Highway 9 and Township Road 284, 10 minutes west of Drumheller. Join us for some brief networking and welcome greetings. Buses will be departing at 9:00 a.m. from Horseshoe Canyon and will return later in the afternoon. There is plenty of parking available at Horseshoe Canyon. No personal vehicles are permitted to follow tour buses.

Throughout the day our hosts will be providing information on Agricultural Service Board, Parks, Planning and Economic Development between the tour stops, sharing some exciting opportunities.

Planned stops will highlight agriculture value-chain operations and new tourism operations.

Highlights of the tour are:

  • Showcasing operations effectively working within the agriculture value chain with producers, processors and retail within the region.

  • Success stories of the market beyond the region with further processing, sourcing and end product markets will be shared with the tour delegates.

  • Tourism features through culinary experiences and the potential crossover into agriculture within Kneehill’s many impressive and diverse landscapes.

  • Investment attraction opportunities within the County by promoting the County’s recently revised Land Use Bylaw enabling easier developing of new agri-business, expansion of an existing one or relocating a new branch facility.

Capping off the day will be a unique culinary experience at Horseshoe Canyon, Kneehill County's newest municipal tourism asset. A memorable long table dinner showcasing the region's bounty and culinary arts will ensure the end of fantastic experience within Kneehill County overlooking one of the Canadian Badlands most visited vistas.

We are looking forward to seeing you.
