FLAGSTAFF COUNTY ATTRACTIONS & EVENTS
Covering nearly one million acres of land, Flagstaff County is dynamic and filled with exciting events and attractions. You can explore unique cultural sites, pick your own fruits and veggies, play in the spray park at Sedgewick Lake, cowboy up at the Hardisty Rodeo and Sedgewick Chuckwagon Races, or watch competitive hockey at one of Killam’s Junior B home games. Along the way, we hope you get to meet some of the friendly people who call this part of Alberta home. 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. Shop local at the many independently owned retails stores, the abundance of local markets, or the local pub and eatery throughout the region. Call the Flagstaff County office at 780-384-4100 or visit us online for more information.
A country drive leads to a discovery of agri-tourism attractions in the countryside and area communities, such as taking a ride with the Friends of the Battle River Train Excursions. You will enjoy spectacular scenery throughout the region on a vintage passenger train. Enjoy the great views around Alliance, Galahad, Forestburg, and see Canada's largest baseball glove in Heisler – all on the route through the southern part of the region.
