The Artists of Elk Run are very grateful for support from the following local businesses!
Valbella Gourmet Foods
Valbella Gourmet Foods was established in 1978 by Walter and Leonie von Rotz in beautiful downtown Canmore. What began as a small 1,000 sq.ft. plant has progressed over the last 40 years into a 40,000 sq.ft. production plant overlooking Canmore’s Three Sister Mountains.
Our European style sausages, hams and air dried meats quickly found their way into Banff’s famous Hotels and Restaurants, and can now be found at gourmet dining establishments, fine hotels and first rate food markets throughout Alberta.
What does it mean to be a craft distillery? At Wild Life Distillery (WLD), our approach to producing great craft spirits is set on a foundation of quality and authenticity. We use our distillery as the medium to connect these values to everything that we do: the clean mountain water we use; the local grain we source; the small batch sizes we produce; our attention to detail; and the community of like-minded individuals that surrounds us, are all a part of the WLD process. Every aspect of this reinforces our view of what it means to be craft. This is further reflected in who we are and the way we live. We work hard to ensure that WLD produces only the highest quality products and are eager to share this passion for quality craftsmanship with you.

Mountain Blends Coffee Roasters offers a great selection of exceptional gourmet coffees, which we roast daily at our coffee roasterie in Canmore Alberta.
