When to Visit Okotoks, Alberta
Due to its location in southern Alberta, Okotoks experiences four distinct seasons each year. Visit during the winter, and you can expect lows in the single digits and an average of 5 feet of snow throughout the season. In the spring, you'll generally find highs in the low 60s Fahrenheit and occasional rain. During the summer, you can look forward to highs in the mid-70s and sunny skies. The fall usually brings highs in the low 50s and dry skies. March tends to be the snowiest month each year, and June is typically the rainiest month.
While weather will probably influence when you visit, be sure to check the town's event calendar before you book your trip. Okotoks hosts a long list of cultural, sports, and food festivals each year, and you'll want to mark your calendar.
Every June, Okotoks Parade and Children's Festival celebrates local heritage with a parade, fair food, and family fun. In late summer, don't miss the Okotoks Pro Rodeo. Cheer on bull riders, watch roping events, explore wild pony races, watch steer wrestling, and much more. In the fall, HarvestFest brings locals and visitors together for carnival games, live music, and an antique farm equipment show. Okotoks also participates in Alberta Culture Days in late September, a time when you can experience a full slate of cultural events all over town.
