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.

Did you know that the Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce has organized and funded the July 1st Parade in Drumheller for over 50 years?
Registration is now open for the 2016 parade. This year's theme is "Drumheller Through the Ages".
*Changes to this year's parade route: The parade will begin at 10:00 am along Riverside Drive. It will wind its way through the downtown along a slightly modified route for 2016. From Riverside Drive, the parade will make its way west along 3rd Avenue to 1st Street West, where it will turn south. At Railway Avenue, the parade will go east and finish at 2nd Street East. Changes to the route have been implemented to provide the best experience for parade participants and spectators. The revised route is intended to alleviate traffic flow issues, allow parade participants to easily and safely exit the parade route at its completion and improve public access to the Canada Day festivities at the Rotary Spray Park, Memorial Arena and Badlands Community Facility following the parade.
