Trail of Trees-w800-h600



Trail of Trees lights up the Badlands Community Facility


The Town of Drumheller and the Badlands Community Facility invite you to celebrate the magic of the holiday season and the spirit of giving with us. Between Dec 2nd and Dec 15th the Badlands Community Facility will be decking it’s halls with beautiful Christmas trees, turning the community facility into a magical Christmas dreamland.

The Town of Drumheller invites businesses, community organizations and families to donate and decorate an artificial Christmas tree which will be displayed in the Trail of Trees at the Badlands Community Facility. The trees will be later donated to a family who might not be able to afford a tree of their own.

The event will be launched on Friday Dec 2nd with a fun community event with people checking out the trees, creating decorations for the BCF tree, carolers singing and hot chocolate and cookies. Santa may even put in an appearance.


Why should you take part?

  • This is a wonderful opportunity for businesses and organizations to promote themselves to the 300 people a day going through the BCF.
  • The cost of a tree and the decorations offers great value for money; creating a greater return than traditional advertising
  • Your business will be recognized as a business with a great community spirit as they give to those most in need this holiday season.

Your role in the program:

  • Contact Charlotte Stokes at the Badlands Community Facility to register your spot
  • Donate a tree, bring it to the BCF and decorate it on Dec 2 from 10am – 8pm.
  • Your decorations can link with your business or be more of the traditional decorations or a mixture of the 2. If you would rather keep your decorated tree, that is find

We will:

  • Promote the event and highlight all the businesses and organizations which take part in this great program
  • Create labels for each tree stating the company who donated it
  • To provide all the power needed to run lights
  • Work with businesses to ensure the trees get to those families in need

“This event has proven very successful in Towns such as Okotoks, High River, Turner Valley and Black Diamond, so we wanted to do something similar. The Town of Drumheller is very excited to put their own flare into this festive initiative.” Says Darren Goldthorpe Manager of Arts Culture and Recreation.

Wine and Paint Night-w800-h600

Paint and Wine Night is back at the Badlands Community Facility! 

Whether you are planning a birthday party, bridal shower, team building event, client appreciation night or a fundraiser; we have the perfect way to do it! Paint and Wine Night at the Badlands Community Facility!

Sip some wine, listen to some tunes, and meet new friends, all while creating a work of art with a fun and experienced instructor! The proven Method Style of painting allows the painter to express their creative side and see results all within their first class. 

What is Method painting you ask? Method painting is where the hard work has already been done for you. A picture has been broken down into its basic elements and the painter is shown how to apply those elements methodically to a canvas. Better yet, the painter is not required to have any artistic experience! 

.... Also, you get to drink wine while doing so!
