Cirque du Soleil: Luzia
LUZIA takes audiences from an old movie set to the ocean to the semi-desert to an undersea world to a cenote to the jungle to a city alleyway to a dance salon – passing smoothly from an urban setting to the natural world, past to present, tradition to modernity.
The Superdogs, the midway, fair food, Chuck wagon, racing – there’s so much happening at the Cochrane Fair. There is so much happening that you’re going to want to take the kids!

Alberta Open Farm Days at Granary Road
Alberta Open Farm Days is about farmers and ranchers inviting their urban and rural neighbors to stop in for a visit to share stories, see demonstrations, and learn more about the farmers who grow their food. We at Granary Road love being part of the tradition and community of farmers in the area. We will be having free tours of our brand new aquaponics facility and Alberta Growers Flower Market in our Greenhouse facility.
Variety Community Day
Variety – the Children’s Charity of Alberta (Variety Alberta) is hosting a Community Day Event to talk to community members who frequent South Glenmore Park and learn what you like about the park/playground and how we can improve it going forward. We will have family friendly activities and snacks for participants throughout the afternoon.

Landmark Cinemas Kids Day
Every Sunday, kids can get out of the house and score a movie ticket and Snack Pack (popcorn, drink, choice of candy treat) for one great, low price. Every movie, every Sunday. Landmark Cinemas’ Kid’s Day – turn the average Sunday into a movie-filled Funday. Check your favourite Landmark Cinemas for showtimes.
