hinton first

We are #HintonFirst;
a local movement to better Hinton, Alberta by encouraging community members to consider #HintonFirst prior to buying, selling, volunteering, or recreating 

The Town of Hinton is proud to support #HintonFirst.


Businesses have a large stake in our community and a role to play in developing and supporting the ideas of #HintonFirst. Customers are looking for service, selection and value from local businesses. A #HintonFirst business strives to shine in these areas, and to accept feedback from customers on how to make their experience the best it can be.


When a resident buys locally, they are doing more than just making a purchase; they’re making an investment in their community. But #HintonFirst is also about much more than just shopping local. It’s about spending your time and your energy experiencing and supporting Hinton as your adopted or original hometown.


Visitors to Hinton have a unique opportunity to try out what makes Hinton proud. Our community is home to a large number of shops, restaurants, and service providers that are eager for a chance at your business. As well, the recreational and outdoor opportunities offer a full itinerary of experiences for you, your family and friends. Find out how you can help to put #HintonFirst.

Current Initiatives

#HintonFirst Festival

The town of Hinton, along with its partners, are looking to encourage Hinton and area residents to think #HintonFirst. So why not have a virtual festival that celebrates this concept?

Announcing the #HintonFirst Festival, fueled by Hinton entrepreneurs, creators and producers sharing their story. Each Wednesday, Feb 3 through Feb 24, Hinton’s small business community will bring Facebook to life through their coordinated live broadcasts. Promoted through a social media campaign including FestivalSeekers, Travel Alberta, The Hinton Voice and the Town of Hinton. Special broadcasts will remind our community and across the region they can think #HintonFirst! 

For where and when these businesses are going live, please RSVP on the #HintonFirst Facebook page! You can go to the Event webpage here.
