Experience the best of Art & Culture in Banff

January 18, 2020

Snow and ice carvers descend on Banff in January, and to celebrate their art and craft, this month’s Banff Gallery Hop is celebrating all things snow and winter. From 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., be indoors or outdoors, try traditional snowshoes, enjoy roaring fire pits with roasted marshmallows, and be inspired by snowy paintings of winter scenes and polar bears. Head to Bear Street to see the final hours of the Snow Sculpting Competition, warm up with the celebrations in all our Galleries and Museums before joining the Snow Sculpting Awards Ceremony and Celebration from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m.

(Admissions may apply at certain museums)

Maps are available for self-discovery at each venue and most hotels in Banff.

Let ROAM Transit take you the Mountain Galleries at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel (Route #2).
