Outdoor Ceremonies

  • Canmore offers spectacular mountain scenery for couples looking to have an outdoor wedding ceremony
  • Three of the most popular locations are Rundleview Parkette, Riverside Park and Quarry Lake

Our couples favourite! This is a semi-private grassy spot that overlooks the Town of Canmore. Trees along the sides of the location make it feel more intimate than the other locations. There is limited parking, but it is across the street from Quarry Lake which can be used for back up parking. Closest washrooms are at Quarry Lake.


Riverside Park is located on the east bank of the Bow River. This park is more manicured than Quarry Lake and offers beautiful views of the river and the majestic Three Sisters mountain range. This site is close to downtown and has easy accessibility. Please note that there is limited parking and no on-site washroom. Riverside Park can accommodate weddings up to 50 people.


Quarry Lake Park offers outstanding mountain views in a natural setting. Accessibility to the ceremony site is by a sloped pathway. The parking area is approximately 300 metres from the site and ‘campground style’ toilets are nearby. Quarry Lake Park can accommodate weddings up to 170 guests. Due to the accessibility, we highly recommend visiting the park prior to booking to ensure it will be suitable for you and your guests.

Things to Note: All locations are open to the general public during your ceremony. Quarry Lake and Riverside Park have gates and the Town of Canmore will not unlock them for wedding ceremonies. Please ensure that you can make arrangements for any guests that may have mobility issues.

When Should I book?
  • The Town of Canmore will take bookings up to 2 years in advance.
How much is a permit?
There is a high demand for these three outdoor ceremony locations and therefore the Town of Canmore insists you have a permit and pay a fee. This ensures that no other wedding or event is booked in these locations for the duration of your rental period (3 hours). Other weddings may occur on your day, but not at the same time.


  • Local Resident $200 + GST for a 3 hour time block
  • Non Resident $400 + GST for a 3 hour time block


For more information and to book an outdoor ceremony location and time slot please contact the Town of Canmore at facility_bookings@canmore.ca or call 403.678.7135
