FLAGSTAFF COUNTY ATTRACTIONS & EVENTS
While you are visiting, take a break and enjoy the local culture of the region. Step back in time at any of the region’s six museums, including Canada’s only surface coal mining museum – The Diplomat Mine Interpretive Site. Visitors can also “relive the memories” at the Sodbusters Archives Museum in Strome. The annual Country Roots Tour on August 17 is an exciting opportunity to experience Flagstaff Region’s food, farms and history – the tour has been a sold-out success in previous years; get your tickets before they’re gone! Call the Flagstaff County office at 780-384-4100 or visit them online.
Take a ride with the Friends of the Battle River Railway Excursions, where you will enjoy spectacular scenery throughout the region on a vintage passenger train. Enjoy the great views around Alliance, Galahad, Foresturg, and see Canada’s largest baseball glove in Heisler – all on the route through the southern part of the region. See the website events listing for excursions.
