We invite you to come on down on Saturday, July 14th to enjoy great live music, our 10th Annual Chili Cook-Off, incredible local food, fruits, veggies and more!

Steel & Timber is a talented trio & local favourite and always a crowd pleaser at the Calgary Farmers’ Market. Their music is a blend of roots country, folk rock, bluegrass and blues. Their eclectic sound is influenced by bands like the Black Keys, the Avett Brothers, Johnny Cash, and Jack White and the percussive energy of their playing has a earned them a unique place in Calgary’s music scene. Steel & Timber will take the stage at 11am.

Then you’ll be wowed by the talented female trio visiting from Vancouver. Last year, The Heels caught market-goers attention during the 2017 Stampede, while busking and blowing us away. They are a 2016 BCCMA Award winning female Country music trio with past solo careers spanning a rainbow of genres. The Heels - Bobbi Smith, Brittni Dominelli & Kyla Rawlins have joined forces as a powerful female presence. The trio are known for three part harmonies, sassy lyrics, unforgettable melodies and outstanding heels! The Heels will kick things up notch at 12pm.

Come on down and join us for this fantastic showcase of great Canadian musicians!
