It’s finally here!!! The 2018 Market is full of exciting vendors who will be selling their beautiful products, many of them handmade crafts. We think this is going to be the best Crestmont Christmas Market EVER!!!
It all begins this Friday (November 16) at 4:00pm – 9:00pm and then again Saturday and Sunday from 10:00am – 4:00pm.
We have quite a bit of change-over so there will be a different collection of vendors for you to check out each day.
Here is a link to a photo album containing a selection of the many things that will be available for you to get all your Christmas Shopping done early this year.
Also, from 11am – 1pm on Saturday and Sunday we will have live seasonal music from Doug Taylor
Please stop by, we look forward to seeing you!
Through the remediation following the emptying of the storm drainage pond at the bottom of Crestmont, an opportunity has arisen to create a community garden. This project would need to be led by a dedicated team of volunteers. For more information about the location and scope of the project, or to volunteer, please email Megan Brayshaw, CCA secretary, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Your CCA is holding a snack bar during the Crestmont HOA presented event, Movie in the Park, showing A Wrinkle In Time. Friday, September 7, as soon as it’s dark enough to see the screen. The movie will be set up directly behind the hall, the snack bar will be just outside the daycare doors, under the overhang. Bring your loonies!!
We have been receiving many complaints about unkempt greenspaces in our community. If you have concerns about dead trees, overgrown pathways or boulevards that need attention, we urge you to report them to the City of Calgary through the 311 mobile app, or by simply dialing 311. The more reports we make as a community, the more likely we are to get attention before the snow falls.
Please join your CCA for our annual Kids Day, this Sunday, September 9.
The fun includes:
40′ Inflatable Obstacle Course
Hamburger and Hot Dog BBQ
And much more!

Once you are in street view mode, you can zoom out with your mouse wheel or by clicking the “minus” button in the bottom right of the screen.
In 3D view you can hold down the CMD/CTRL key and click and drag with your mouse to spin and tilt. If you do not hold the key down you can click and drag to scroll around and view the area.

Hey Crestmont & Valley Ridge, it is that time of year again where we all get together and clean up our communities. This year, the Valley Ridge Community Association will be helping us put on the event so we welcome all the Valley Ridge residents as well.
This is a great opportunity for all of us to clean up our garages and yards and also help out by cleaning up the green spaces around our communities. We will have garbage bags, gloves and pick-up sticks available for everyone to use. Please grab your family and come down to help out. We live in beautiful communities and it is up to us all to keep them clean and tidy. For volunteers that help out we have lots of food, snacks and drinks to keep you fueled up, and for the families we have a scavenger hunt with prizes!!!
Just a few important details…
What we can take:
- Typical garbage
- Yard waste
What we CANNOT take:
- Propane and helium tanks
- Paint, fuels and chemicals
- Anything dangerous.
If you have any paint or chemicals you can take them to participating fire stations or landfill sites.
The Women In Need organization will be there to take items that are not ready for the garbage as well.
Please join us at the Crestmont Hall and please be careful and respectful to everyone!!!
