Description
Incorporated in 1904, Okotoks thrived on brick making, lumber and oil distribution in its early days. Today Okotoks is a commuter community of Calgary. The town gets its name from the Blackfoot name okatoks, meaning “rocks.” Big Rock, 7 kilometres (4 mi.) west, is the continent's largest known glacial boulder, having been carried here during an ice age.
A popular recreational retreat, Okotoks offers such leisure pursuits as fishing and hiking. Events include Spirit of Okotoks Children's Festival , held in mid-June in conjunction with the Spirit of Okotoks Parade , as well as the Okotoks Pro Rodeo on Labour Day weekend.
