Special Events - Community Recreation

From local to national events

The City of St. Albert is host to a wide variety of special events each year. The events range from small gatherings in a park to larger community-wide events. Some popular areas for special events include Riel Recreation Park, Lions Park, Rotary Park, Kingswood Park, Red Willow trail system, downtown/Perron District and Servus Credit Union Place.

Servus Place has earned a reputation as a preferred venue for hosting a variety of major events. With many facility amenities, anchored by the 2,000 seat Go Auto Arena the venue continues to be the host of regional, provincial, national and international events.

Community Events Coordinators liaise between event organizers and various City of St. Albert departments to provide event support services. A variety of facility options, support services, and professional event staff all combine to make every event a huge success.
