EVENTS WE HOLD
The Three Hills Summer Celebration Parade is a festive display of community spirit hosted on the second Saturday of July by the Three Hills Chamber. Colourful themed floats parade their way up Main Street past sidewalks crowded with spectators to Anderson Park, then further on to Golden Hills Lodge: community groups and businesses, area fire departments and emergency responders, bicycle riders, marching bands, clowns, buskers, horses and riders, agricultural equipment and much more – plus lots of safe (but not peanut-free) candy! See the Upcoming Events for details about this year’s parade.
SMALL BUSINESS WEEK
It’s not easy being in business, but the Three Hills Chamber believes that a prosperous business sector is essential to a thriving community. Every year in October the Chamber brings together business people in Three Hills to celebrate their entrepreneurial spirit, professionalism and dedication to private enterprise. Activities change from year to year: an evening dinner with special guest speaker; publicly recognizing the accomplishments of local businesses through awards in different categories of achievement; workshops or seminars on matters of topical interest or professional development; relaxed social and networking occasions. See the Upcoming Events for details about this year’s Small Business Week.
CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
Join us for the Three Hills Chamber of Commerce Golf Tournament hosted every two or three years on the lovely fairways and greens of the Three Hills Golf Club course – one of the very best in central Alberta. After a pleasant and rewarding nine holes of golf, players retire to the clubhouse for a mouth-watering steak BBQ dinner with plenty of sides and trimmings. Some fun and some competitive awards are presented at the dinner – and no one walks away empty-handed from the draw for sponsors’ door prizes. This is a great chance to relax with friends and business associates and the tournament fills up fast, so pre-registration is a must. See the Upcoming Events for details about our next golf tournament.
MOONLIGHT CHRISTMAS MARKET
