Father’s Day Brunch
There is no better way to start your weekend than a Father’s Day brunch at the Fence & Post! Chef Chris Hartman is excited to bring to Cochrane a unique dining experience that will impress you with its quality and approachability.
The brunch is served from 10 am – 2 pm, Saturday and Sunday.
Make your reservation by phone or email. 403 981 7678 Info@fenceandpost.ca
Backyard BBQ Box
After brunch head to The Horse Creek Heritage Candy and Gifts, down the street from Fence & Post, situated on Cochrane’s main street right next to the legendary MacKay’s Ice Cream. Horse Creek evokes southern Alberta’s western heritage. Stepping through the front door is like taking a step back in time. The look, feel and products at Horse Creek Candy celebrate Alberta’s prairie and ranching heritage.
This is where you can pick up a Backyard BBQ BOX for Dad! A great collection of items to enhance any DIY BBQ. Nothing says “Happy Father’s Day” like a great BBQ… ($45). You may want to pre-order as these boxes are a hot commodity! Call 403-981-8898 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Once you have your BBQ box…Head to the Market!
Market by the Bow
Who doesn’t love a delicious meal made for them? To complement your Backyard BBQ Box, pick up your ingredients from our very own Cochrane Farmers Market for a truly delicious Father’s Day meal. The Market has relocated to the parking lot at Spray Lakes Family Sports Centre and runs from 9 am to 2 pm. (Please note from 9 – 10 am is “Seniors Hour”)
You might need to head here first depending on your brunch reservation! Incorporate the following seasonal vegetables for the ultimate flavour boost: asparagus, beets, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, rhubarb, & more. Get some meat or fresh trout for the BBQ sauce in the ‘BOX and Goat cheese for the Cheese Ball mix in the ‘BOX.
Craft Beer Box
Finally, head to Vinestone and get Dad his very own unique Craft Beer Box! ($55-$75).
Enjoy your weekend and wish Dad a happy Father’s Day from us!!
