2019 Growing Kneehill Country Market and Long Table Dinner

On August 17th the Kneehill County Agricultural Service Board hosted another amazing Long Table Dinner and Country Market at Horseshoe Canyon. In collaboration with Alberta Open Farms Days and finishing up Alberta Local Food Week, the popular event showcased some of the very best in local food, artisans and tourism operators, sponsored by Canalta Hotels, Servus Credit Union, Travel Drumheller, Life’s Simple Ingredient, Soleterra d’Italia, and Bear and Flower Farm.

26 vendors participated in the Country Market, promoting local artisans and foods, from flavoured butters to locally roasted coffee, specialty tea, cured meats, fresh goat cheese, delicious fruit pies and honey, handcrafted goods such as hardwood boards, woolen blankets, pottery, art, body care products and essential oils, local tourism operators, organizations and more. Over 2000 people attended this year’s market, which featured live music by Sugar Richards, face-painting for kids, paleontologist- guided tours of the Canyon, and the Stuffed Kilt food truck.

Following the Country Market, 100 people took part in the extremely successful ticketed Long Table Dinner, situated overlooking the breathtaking views of the canyon. Partnering with Food Tourism Strategies and Executive Chefs Paul Rogalski, Pierre Lamielle and Ryan O’Flynn, the delicious meal was created using ingredients almost entirely sourced from within Kneehill County. Guests enjoyed the musical stylings of Lauren Degraff throughout the family-style dinner, which paired each course with a sampling of beer and spirits from local breweries and distilleries.

Kneehill County is planning another Long Table Dinner and Country Market for 2020. If you are interested in promoting your business by participating in next year’s event, please contact us at asb@kneehillcounty.com or 403-443-5541.
