The holidays are over, but you can still look forward to a special winter celebration at the Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant on January 29, 2016. The Historic Bow Valley Ranche will be presenting the 1st Annual Kick Off to Québec Carnival Fête. This event is a tribute to the 60th Anniversary of the twinning of Calgary and Québec City as sister cities.
The evening’s festivities begin outside at 5:30 with opening ceremonies, which include the unveiling of the Hallmark Ice Sculpture. If you attend, you’ll also watch the presentation of the keys to the city by the City of Calgary to Bonhomme’s twin! (Bonhomme is the snowman mascot of the world’s largest winter carnival – Québec City’s winter carnival.)
At 6:30, warm up indoors while enjoying entertainment provided by Québec fan favourite Shari Chaskin, Québec-based duo FOLKLOFOLIE and Calgary’s own DUSTY SADDLES. You’ll also get to view the Le Chateau Fashion Show.
A delectable meal follows at 7:00 featuring a menu of French Canadian cuisine by Jenny Kang and Daryl Kerr. Strawberry Banana Flambé, Duck Rillette with cranberry mustard, Pear and Bleu Cheese Mini Tart and Opéra Cake are just a few items on the menu. The dinner menu is a tribute to Québec’s culinary heritage.
