Turner Valley 2019 Discovery Day Opportunities

The Town of Turner Valley has opportunities for the 2019 Discovery Day family event.  We are looking for market vendors, food vendors, volunteers and sponsors.

The communities of Black Diamond and Turner Valley invite you to join them for the annual Diamond Valley Parade and Discovery Day being held Saturday, June 1, 2019. An annual tradition and one of the best, free events in the Calgary Area, the Diamond Valley Parade kicks off at 10:00 a.m. and is celebrating its 52nd amazing year of entertaining generations of locals and visitors. A full day of family fun follows in both towns. Live music and a pop-up market will fill the downtown immediately after the parade.

Turner Valley’s Discovery Day event starts in Millennium Park at 11 am and runs until 3 p.m.  The fun day’s festivities features bounce houses, a petting zoo, face painting, a local artisan market, fire department demonstrations and food vendors offering a variety of delicious treats.

Complementing the event is the Rhubarb Festival and Quilt Show being held at the Sheep Creek Arts Council and the Valley Neighbours Garden Club plant sale.

Call for Food Vendors

Organizers are looking to expand the food choices offered at the annual Discovery Day event. The results of a recent survey identified the need for more food trucks and gluten-free and vegetarian options, as well as fun carnival-style foods such as popcorn, cotton candy and mini donuts. If you think your organization or business can provide this offering, please complete the attached food vendor application.
