The communities of Bellevue and Hillcrest jointly present Bellecrest Days on the weekend in June which most closely coincides with the anniversary of the Hillcrest Mine Disaster of June 19, 1914. Celebrations usually alternate between the two communities. The 2016 Days were fabulous, from the main street parade to the many kid-friendly events. Come enjoy this small-town community weekend event!
This family-focused weekend is a great opportunity to explore the heritage of the entire Crowsnest Pass. Community events are free, and all of the major heritage attractions are open. You can check the Bellecrest Community Association website (external site) for more details on Bellecrest Days.
