Welcome to Central Alberta

Brimming with rivers, rodeo and even a Red Deer, Central Alberta is a true old-fashioned, out-west recreational experience! Explore the city of Red Deer by tubing the rushing waters of Red Deer River, discovering historic Fort Normandeau or downhill skiing Canyon Ski Resort! But, a stop in Red Deer isn’t complete without celebrating Westerner Days, an annual week-long celebration filled with rodeo, livestock shows and parades! Make sure to dust off your cowboy hat before heading out of town and boating on Sylvan Lake or driving the Icefields Parkway for fantastic glacial views. And, after camping the badlands of Dry Island Buffalo Jump Provincial Park where bison herds were once hunted, you’ll feel like a true Central Albertan cowboy!
