Although Lacombe Days is an annual festival that returns year-after-year, it requires fresh ideas, a bit of guessing, and a lot of hoping that we are making the right move for you.
Along with community feedback, looking at participation, costs, and other planning components really factor into the events that the Lacombe Days Association try to provide. That being said, new changes are brought in again this year.
The biggest change you’ll be noticing to the Lacombe Days Festival is the lack of fireworks on Saturday night. Due to the amount of fireworks available throughout the year, plus the depleting length of show times, we’re making a gamble that we are really excited about! We are partnering with Catalyst Productions to bring out a light show Friday AND Saturday evening. Catalyst Productions has worked on stages with Gord Banford, Jay Sean, Akon, and more - and will be lighting up Michener Park for an awesome show! He will be following the bands each night, so come down to listen to some live music before and enjoy the show!
Every year we get the feedback that you are missing the shoot outs. We agree, they were a fan-favourite! We have been working the past couple of years to bring back some form of car event, from mud bogs to shoot outs, and due to location constraints, we have not been able to nail something down – yet! We will continue to try figure this out to get some car events back to Lacombe Days!
We value the feedback we receive from everyone, and we have a lot of help with our volunteers trying to get your feedback. So we welcome you, anytime you see a Lacombe Days t-shirt walk on by this July, let us know what you think! This is a festival for you – put together by people like you; people who have a passion for our community, who want to see the community come together and celebrate, who want to see guests welcomed to our community with outstretched arms to join in the summer fun.
