Now in its 51st year, the Big Thompson Canyon Association (BTCA) Pancake Breakfast has become a tradition for many families. A Sunday trip up the Big Thompson Canyon and breakfast in the historic log building spells an enjoyable and inexpensive family outing. Advance tickets are only $7 for adults and $5 for children 4 to 9 years of age; tickets are $1 more at the door. Little ones under 4 eat for free. BTCA members also host a bake sale; proceeds from the pancake breakfast and bake sale fund the BTCA during the year.

The Loveland Fire Rescue Authority, Canyon Battalion hosts a craft show next door at the firehouse. Participants are local crafters whose table fees assist the fire department with various needs.

There is also a charity raffle, this year benefiting the Big Thompson Watershed Coalition. This group has been very active in restoring the ecology of the Big Thompson River corridor: details of their work can be found at . Prizes include merchandise and gift certificates from many area businesses.
