Firsthand Fiesta – stop by Maxi Foods for a private tour of how authentic Mexican cuisine is prepared. It is said that you haven’t really visited Mexico until you’ve tried at least one of the delicious dishes and foods that have made Mexican gastronomy famous worldwide. Mexican cuisine is appreciated for the way many of its dishes - the majority of which usually start with a base of corn, beans, spices, chili peppers, tomatoes, onion and garlic – still preserve their pre-Hispanic origins and are truly unique.

Maxi Foods was created with the commitment to bring those unique foods and flavours to all communities in Canada.

M: Calling all history buffs! Catch up on your local area knowledge with a tour of the Nose Creek Valley MUSEUM directly adjacent to Nose Creek Regional Park.

B: What tastes better after a long ride, but a fresh cold beer! Stop into any of Airdrie's three BREWERIES for a sip, or find a spot on your favourite patio. 

L: Looking to minimize your down time and keep your bike on the road where it belongs?  Stop by Destination Cycle to LUBE up with a ride up, same day, and while you wait tire and oil changes!

E: If there's one thing needed any time this summer, its a great place to stop and EAT! Airdrie is a destination for Alberta On The Plate and offers many culinary delights.
