Musical Ride coming to Fort Steele August 2

On Sunday, August 2, Fort Steele Heritage Town is thrilled to be welcoming Lord Strathcona’s Musical Ride to our park to bring their entertaining mounted demonstration to the East Kootenay.

Lord Strathcona’s Mounted Troop is an authorized volunteer display unit, reminiscent of Lord Strathcona’s Horse in the 1920s and ‘30s. The 20-horse, 25-member Troop performs the Musical Ride and Tent Pegging demonstration, which draws from the Regiment’s earliest traditions.

In addition to the Musical Ride, Fort Steele is pleased to welcome, Cranbrook’s own, The Good Ol’ Goats who will bring their popular folk-rock sound to Fort Steele Heritage Town once again. The six-piece alternative folk band played one of their earliest gigs on the streets of Fort Steele and are taking time from their current Western Canadian tour to help us celebrate BC Day Weekend.

There will also be displays featuring the Sam Steele Scouts, The Back Country Horsemen and the North West Mounted Police.

As if that wasn’t enough, the evening will culminate with a fireworks display (if the weather cooperates).

The event starts at 6 p.m. and tickets for this event are $25 (taxes included) and must be purchased in advance. Tickets are available at the Cranbrook Chamber of Commerce, Cranbrook Safeway or by calling Fort Steele at 250-417-6000.

Fort Steele Heritage Town is a living history museum dedicated to the preservation, education and interpretation of the pioneer mining town during the late 1800s. The Friends of Fort Steele Society is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to continuing conservation initiatives, building community partnerships, developing a sustainable funding model and providing the nearly 80,000 annual visitors with an experience that truly enables them to visualize a day in the life of Fort Steele in its heyday.
