Event Descriptions

Everyone Loves a Parade

Step into a moving postcard from 1910 as you cheer on the antique vehicles, wagons, townsfolk and so much more during our Dominion Day parade.

Watch the (Tiny) Hooves Fly!

Four tiny horses, two mini wagons, one HUGE spectacle! Grab a seat in our rodeo grounds for fast dash fun as drivers race to the finish line before your eyes.

Meet the Newest Canadians

Remember what it means to be Canadian as you celebrate with 105 new Canadians and watch as they take their official oath of Citizenship.

Rendezvous

Kick up your heels and join dancers, fiddlers and a variety of Métis artists in the settlement area of the Park to celebrate Rendezvous - 1880s style!

Fun, Games, Food

The Park will be buzzing with activities all day long with crafts, old fashioned family games, live music and performers and a not to be missed, mouth-watering BBQ tent. (Check out our menu)

Journey of a Lifetime

Don't miss the grand opening of a brand new, immersive exhibit and performance - Journey of a lifetime, presented by BMO Financial Group. The family-friendly performance tells the story of courageous and hopeful immigrants who arrived through Eastern ports in 1910 and crossed Canada by Colonist train.

The accompanying exhibit provides an opportunity for visitors to record and share their own immigration stories, to learn about BMO's role in settling Western Canada and to delve deeper into this timely Canadian story.
