This year’s Best of Crowsnest Awards will look different this year.

With Covid-19 protocols making gatherings limited, the awards presentation will be going virtual this year.

“Our awards this year will be quite a bit different from our usual gathering at the beautiful venue at SpringBreak Flower Farm. Due to gathering restrictions we would have had to limit tickets to 1 or 2 per business and even then, this would not be enough to include everyone. In previous years we have always had the event on a Monday/Tuesday because this is a slower day for businesses so owners/managers can come out and enjoy an evening celebrating with their staff. From year 1 to 2 our event attendance had more than doubled. Rather than limit tickets that would then potentially lead to businesses being excluded we decided it would only make sense to hold a virtual event and encourage everyone to get out grab some local food and drinks and celebrate within your cohort. Our event will be live via Facebook on September 22nd at 7 PM,” said Office Manager Brandy Fehr.

Fehr says there are also three new awards up for grabs this year.
“New awards this year include:

- Best Winter Activity, we thought that this category would give people some fun ideas to keep them busy throughout those snowy months of the year.

- Best Innovative Idea during COVID-19, our community has done an amazing job of keeping each other’s spirits up these past 6 months and we thought adding this category would show how those efforts have really helped us get by.

- Best Patio, we have some amazing patios with some incredible views here in Crowsnest!”

This year there were 190 nominations made and 1,731 votes were cast.

Fehr hopes that people will use these awards as a way to support local businesses and take advantage of the great local stores in the community.

“We really hope that this event encourages people to get out into the community by shopping local and trying something new. If you see somewhere on the list that you didn’t know had something (example. Chicken wings), go check it out. If you’ve been thinking of getting a project done around the house but weren’t sure who your options are, now you have some. If you just moved to the area, you now have a list of some of our treasures here in Crowsnest Pass.”
