  1. The St. Albert Farmers' Market is the largest outdoor market in Western Canada, with over 200 vendors selling farm produce, meat, baked goods, wood work, jewelry, quilts and more.
  2. Father Lacombe Chapel, built in 1861 to serve as a Cree and Metis mission, is the oldest log structure in Alberta.
  3. The International Children's Festival is one of the longest running children's festivals in North America, attracting over 40,000 participants each year during the last week of May.
  4. Rock'n August is a week-long festival held to celebrate the classic cars and Rock and Roll music. Every year they kick off the event with a parade of the classics through the main thoroughfares in St. Albert.
  5. The Musee Heritage Museum, located in city hall, is a tribute to local, Alberta and Canadian history. Exhibits are changed every two months and admission is free.
  6. City Hall is an architectural attraction in itself. Designed by famous Canadian architect, Douglas Cardinal, who took his inspiration from the flowing curves of the Sturgeon River it stands beside.

  7. The St. Albert Botantic Parkis garden in the heart of the city, next to the Red Willow Trail. Its gardens display roses, daylilies, asiatic lilies, dahlias, perennials and lilacs and attract more than 10,000 visitors each year.
  8. Lacombe Park Lake is a favourite of the citizens and is utilized year round. In winter, the lake freezes and is ideal for skating and hockey. In spring and summer, it's ideal for picnics, walking, running, and biking, and offers an off-leash area for dogs.
  9. St. Albert Grain Elevator Park features two of Alberta's designated wooden grain elevators -- the 1906 Alberta Grain Company Elevator and the 1929 Alberta Wheat Pool Elevator.  Both these important landmarks received their designation as Provincial Historic Resources in January 2007. Grain elevators are a dying feature on the Canadian landscape.
  10. Proximity places us close to Edmonton, and Fort Edmonton Park, The Fringe Festival, The Folk Festival, The Valley Zoo, West Edmonton Mall, and much, much more.

St. Albert is a great place to live, work and play. If you are considering visiting or moving, you will be welcomed with open arms.

What do you do at the grain elevators? 

And really, who goes to a chapel for fun?

They are historical walks to learn about the founding on the town. At the chapel they often have events on how to weave wool, how to bake without common appliances, scavenger hunt taking you around not just the original chapel but the other areas, other events e never took part in, and a solemn walk to resting place of important religous people.You can see artifacts from the 1800's as well as learn the history about the town. My children enjoyed the grain elevators, they put on events, and have other entertainment there as well including old wagon rides, tilling, and refreshments. The children can see communications devices (morse code operator), an original typewriter ect from the times. The historical items on that list don't take up a ton of time. In fact we did 3 of them in 1 day as they are closely spaced, but as a family we had fun, and learned a bit.
