BRUDERHEIM Attractions & Events
Plan to visit the Old Walker School—it was a four-room schoolhouse built in 1908 of birch veneer that served until 1927 when it was destroyed by fire. A new school was built on the same site and is now a museum and a designated Provincial Historical Resource. Visit www.bruderheim.ca to see excerpts from the local history book, From Bush to Bushels: A History of Bruderheim and District. The Bruderheim Firehall has a display that showcases a piece of the Bruderheim Meteorite, which fell in 1960. The giant rock shook homes and could be heard over 5,000 square kilometres and about 700 fragments were found in the area.
Join Bruderheim’s many social events, including the Meteorite Cup Ball Hockey event in June, Canada Day Celebrations, the exciting Alberta Model T Races in July, and Christmas Celebrations held on the third Saturday each November.
Follow the paved Bruderheim Heritage Trail that links neighbourhoods and scenic sites throughout the community. Enjoy a skate at the brand new Cosmic Skatepark, or visit the Spring Creek Wetland Interpretive Centre, behind the Town Office, to learn why wetlands and native plants are so important to our quality of life. Those with a love for nature and gardening will be thrilled to explore Queen’s Park at the south end of Queen Street. The Bruderheim Campground is open from spring thaw to fall freeze-up and offers 24 serviced sites with power, water, and sani-dump. Unserviced sites are also available.
