It seems the reputation for a hungry and appreciative crowd has circulated the Province of BC causing a bounty of food vendors to sign up for the Taste of Cranbrook Food Court at the Central Fairgrounds of this year’s Sam Steele Days Community Festival.
“The Taste of Cranbrook event is now 11 years old and we have been popular from the beginning, each year becoming more exciting,” declares Sam Steele Society Director and entrepreneur Corinne Friesen.
“Once again many favorite food vendors and area restaurateurs will be out in full force showing off their latest yummy delights.”
A diverse culinary expo will take place represented by 17 East Kootenay sustenance specialists and joined by another four unique vendors from Winlaw, Nelson, Cherryville and Castlegar. Never will there be a greater opportunity in Cranbrook to sample a wider array of tantalizing tasties in one location. Enjoy live music while you snack, wander through the Sam Steele Market and let the kids play for free in the Kids Fun Zone. On Saturday, June 20, from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Sunday, June 21, from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Rotary Park in central Cranbrook will come alive with numerous fun activities for all ages. We have an amazing annual Festival thanks to the many volunteers and supporters.
Spring Honda has partnered with the Taste of Cranbrook for the past three years.
“Being involved in big community events like the Sam Steele Days Taste of Cranbrook, the Canada Day Celebration and The Spring Honda Fun Run have all been very positive experiences for our business,” says Corey Spring, co-owner of Spring Honda. “We feel fortunate to be able to sponsor events that everyone in the community can take part in. It gives us a sense of pride to see local families enjoying their time together at an event we had a part in making happen. Grass roots community event sponsorships allow us to follow Honda Canada’s corporate leadership and give back to the communities where we work and live.
“To be a company that people want to exist and create value for our community is what drives us. Seeing our children enjoy Sam Steele Days just like we did when we were kids is a pretty special feeling and having our company involved only adds to that.”
The Sam Steele Society Director will pass the torch following this year’s event.
This is an especially exciting and emotional year for Corinne as it is the last year she will be the Director of the Taste of Cranbrook. “It is with much regret that I leave this position. I have enjoyed the years of planning and working with the many professional volunteers involved with the Sam Steele Society.”
Various volunteer positions are available for anyone who feels they can contribute to our city’s favorite festival event and work as a team with others who admire our unique Kootenay culture and heritage. Support within the Sam Steele Society for new members is exceptional. You’ll learn that you can do it and have a lot of fun too. Just show up with your positive attitude and see the incredible results. Interested persons can call the Sam Steele Society Office (250) 426-4161 or email your message to email@example.com
