On December 7, 2021 Council approved a scope and budget increase to capital project 7207 Stan Rogers Memorial Stage from $75,000 to a total budget of $175,000, funded by a $50,000 contribution from the Canmore Folk Festival Society and $125,000 from the Asset Rehabilitation & Replacement Reserve. 

The Stan Rogers Memorial Stage is the hub for outdoor music and cultural entertainment in Canmore, and home of the annual Canmore Folk Music Festival. While undertaking a flooring replacement project, it was observed that eight structural posts have deteriorated at grade level and below. As work began to remedy the structural issues related to the posts, it was further discovered that there are additional structural faults with the stage. The scope of work and budget to address these additional issues go beyond what was approved by Council in June of 2021. This structure is in need of repair before any other work can continue and the repairs must occur before regular programming activity returns to the stage.
