About this Festival

Considered the hidden jewel in the Crown of the Continent, Waterton Lakes National Park is the meeting place where multiple ecosystems converge and where the mountains meet the prairies in a stunning visual collision.

Buy your tickets online today.

Because of these geological and ecological factors, Waterton holds immense wildlife diversity. For its size of just over 505 sq. kilometres, Waterton Lakes National Park holds the most wildlife diversity than any other national park in Canada. In fact, it is very rare to not see some sort of wildlife in Waterton, whether it be a white-tailed deer, big horn sheep, or black bear.

Out of multitude of questions and general curiosity about the diversity of wildlife in Waterton, the Waterton Wildlife Weekend was born.

Join us September 23rd to September 25th, 2016 to learn all about the animals living in the Rocky Mountains and the prairies.
