Would you like to see a Pheasant Festival in Drumheller?

Recently there have been discussions about hosting a Pheasant Festival in the Drumheller area in the spring of 2017 (March). Other communities in southern Alberta have hosted similar events – Stettler and Taber. New for 2016, the Highway 41 Pheasant Festival will take place in the Oyen/Consort area. This type of event has the potential to bring hundreds of participants to the host community.

The Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce has been asked to gauge local interest from the business community in hosting this type of event in the Drumheller area. Click here to complete the survey.

 

Have time for one more short survey?

In an effort to continually enhance the value of membership for our Chamber members, we are currently looking into the creation of a Member 2 Member (M2M) discount program. The aim of this program would be to encourage local shopping and business-to-business interactions within the community. We would like to gage the interest of the business community in this type of program, and have prepared a short (3 questions) survey. If you have a moment, please complete the survey here. We appreciate your input.
