In the heart of the Albertan prairie, Grand Prairie is about as Canadian as it gets. This truly shines through in the city’s culture, where you can see the best of Canada’s heartland. Whether you appreciate the economy that makes a country run, the music that makes it dance, or exciting events that make it stand up and cheer, there’s something for you.


Peace Region Petroleum Show – May 13th-14th

Canada is a land of natural resources, making oil-rich Alberta the ideal location for a petroleum show. Join thousands of visitors as they look through hundreds of exhibitions. You’ll have the chance to get acquainted with Canadian soil (but hopefully not sand) as you play in the exhibitor’s golf tournament. Then, spend some time with the local businesses in the trade show before you relax in the hospitality lounge. Visit their website for more information. 

Fiddling In The Key of Eh?! – May 23rd

A true Canadian, Scott Woods joins his band for a classic exhibition of fine prairie fiddling. Music from the 30s, 40s, and 50s will be performed alongside Woods’ patented step-dancing, homespun humour, and trick fiddling. And, on top of that, he’s as polite as you’d imagine! You’ll be able to join the triple-fiddle harmony with your own voice as they play familiar classics. Learn more at their website.

Grande Prairie Stompede – May 27th-31st

The “grande” finale of the month is the Grande Prairie Stompede. You read that right: it’s a stompede because you’ll be stomping and hollering as you cheer for the incredible chuck-wagon racedrivers, trick-riders, cowboys, cowgirls, and hold-on-tight stallion tamers. Or feast your eyes on the brightly-coloured clowns as they pop in and out of the stands. This is an event that’s not to be missed! Get your tickets today.

Whether you’re a Canadian for life or a Canadian for the weekend, Grande Prairie is the perfect place to become a part of this great country. And while you’re up here, spend your nights in the midst of true Canadian hospitality by staying with us. Book your room today. We look forward to your visit!
