Blackfalds days returns for 2022

The Town of Blackfalds has announced the return of Blackfalds Days after a two-year hiatus.

Various events for all ages, including a double feature drive-in movie, a Kids Zone, community market, concerts, and a firework show will be held throughout the three-day festival which runs June 16 to 19.

Sean Barnes, projects, events and Eagle Builders Center manager said they created new events like the first-ever Eagle Builders Centre concert series, featuring headliner Aaron Pritchett.

“But we are also bringing back events like Youth Night Out and the Community Parade, which are always very popular,” said Barnes.

Mayor Jamie Hoover said that he is looking forward to celebrating with the community once again.

“Blackfalds Days has long been a major event in town where we get to see so many of our residents taking in the fun sights and events, especially the families. This celebration of our community has been greatly missed, and I think I speak for everyone on council and all town staff by saying that this year might be the best and most exciting Blackfalds Days we’ve ever held,” said Hoover.

The Blackfalds mayor and councillors will be flipping pancakes and serving residents at the annual Councillors Pancake Breakfast, where proceeds will be going to the Optimist Club of Blackfalds’ disk golf project.
