Wednesday night at the Banff Beaver Bar is Trivia Night.

Trivia night fun!

Trivia night is always a fun blend of comedy, audience participation, spins on the shot wheel and of course some brain-teasing questions. Kicking off at 9pm every Wednesday, The Beaver Bar’s weekly Trivia Night is a great way for solo travelers to join a new team & get to know your fellow backpackers. Each week our fun host Claire will create a themed trivia bonanza and test your knowledge of movies, music, TV,  pop culture, science, sports or geography. We give away terrific prizes every week and always have a great time! So grab a few friends or drop by and join a team on Wednesday nights at The Beaver!

What kind of questions are there?


Thursday night at the Banff Beaver Bar is Open Mike Night.

Open Mic night in Banff

Do you sing, play guitar, bang on bongo drums, recite poetry or juggle pineapples?  If so, why not come and win a prize for entertaining us all.   Our bar is an intimate little space, so if you’re a a bit jumpy in front of big crowds, then fear not!  It’ll just be a small gathering of backpackers, who, let’s face it, will cheer for anything after a few beers!   If you’re not musically inclined, feel free to drop by and watch the show!   It’s always fun.

The festivities start at 9:30pm and go as long as the talent will allow!


Saturday night at the Banff Beaver Bar is Open Mike Night.

Banff’s best karaoke night!

Come down for a crazy Saturday night and hear some of the best (and worst) singing voices from around the world. It’s Karaoke night! Where the amount of talent you have is closely linked to the amount of drinks you have had.

The party kicks off at 10pm sharp.
