October has arrived! From migrating geese to country music, and blacksmithing to pumpkin carving, there's a little something for everyone at FortWhyte Alive this month. Here are a few great ways to spend some time outside this month:
1. Honky Tonk Night
Get outside for a goose flight night for the country crowd, featuring artist Quinton Blair. Sit back by the fire for a night of live tunes, cold cans and one of the best backdrops nature has to offer. Learn more.
FortWhyte Alive is a place of unparalleled outdoor experiences. This autumn, commit to doing something for yourself—spend more time outdoors, and learn something new. Our popular Wildcraft series is back, with a unique lineup of experiences not offered anywhere else: Felting with FIBREARTISTRY, spirituality and self-care with Rogue Wood Blog, Wildcrafting with Northlore and blacksmithing with Cloverdale Forge. Learn more.
3. Sunset Goose Flights
Come by FortWhyte one evening to witness this magical migration ritual complete with a bonfire and BBQ, or dine in style with a three-course feast Buffalo Stone Café. Learn more about Sunset Goose Flights here and Goose Flight Feasts here.
