Description

Community Event takes place all weekend.  Festival includes parade, Craft & Trade Show, garage sale, climbing wall, soap box derby, pancake breakfast, live stage entertainment, family fun zone and much more!

During the 19th and early-20th century, the exploration and extraction of the abundant resources in the lower Elk Valley continued, but few settlers braved the challenges of the wilderness frontier in the Elkford area. One prominent character, ‘Wildcat’ Charlie Weigert, was a trapper, well known for his hospitality in the area and of which the annual Elkford celebration ‘Wildcat Days’ is named.
