Summer is festival season - there's no doubt about it! Who hasn't spent at least one summer weekend in a spectacular Canadian outdoor setting watching your favourite bands round the clock, camping with other festival goers, dancing to the music, soaking your feet in a cold river or lake to cool off and, of course, eating festival food or cooking your own over a campfire?

Wild Mountain Festival

If you want a spectacular setting for a music festival than Wild Mountain Music Festival in Alberta's Northern Rockies must be on your festival list this summer!  Happening July 13-15 and set just outside of Hinton, AB, your views of Jasper National Park will be breathtaking!

And with everyone from Canadian icon Tom Cochrane (come on... who hasn't road tripped to Life if a Highway...) to Fred Penner in the lineup, this is one festival that's perfect for the whole family. There's even a kids area full of family friendly activities.

But let's talk about festival food - we all have a wonderful memory of some glorious festival food treat that we only got to have once or twice a year.  We asked 6 Alberta food bloggers to create some festival inspired food based on their memories so you would have lots of ideas to make your own festival treats that you can even take with you or cook over your campfire.

And that's not all!  Each of these bloggers is giving away a full weekend pass (valued at $180) to Wild Mountain Festival on their blogs! So be sure to click through to the recipes for your chance to enter to win (visit each blog and that's six entries!).  Or if you don't want to take your chances, you can purchase tickets right here.
