Red Deer Attractions, Activities & Events

Alberta’s third largest city, Red Deer sits in a beautiful river valley midway between Calgary and Edmonton. Its central location makes it a natural meeting point for business. Its shops, restaurants and attractions make it an ideal location for a getaway or family reunion. Everything in town is within a 10-minute drive of Sheraton Red Deer.

Come Home to Red Deer, Alberta

Welcome to Red Deer, the beating heart of Western Canadian hospitality. The perfect home base between Calgary and Edmonton, our city is a top Alberta vacation destination, alive with culture and entertainment, unique shops and eateries, and a ton of family friendly fun. The four-star Sheraton Red Deer Hotel is located in a thriving neighborhood, with easy access from Highway 2, just a stone’s throw from the very best that Red Deer has to offer.

Experience an Authentic Taste of Western Canada

With over 9000 working farms in the area, Red Deer gives you an authentic taste of western hospitality, farm fresh food, and the chance to take part in an amazing array of “agri-tourism” activities for the whole family. Nothing beats the sweet flavor of fresh berries plucked from one of the many U-pick farms or visit one of the oldest farmers markets in the region, the Red Deer Market, and enjoy an afternoon getting lost in a sunflower maze. You’ll be surprised by the fun you can find in Red Deer.

Family Friendly Fun

From meandering fields and working ranches to heart-pounding thrills at Alberta’s largest outdoor water park, you’ll love to play in Red Deer! On a hot summer day, nothing beats the twists, turns and drops at Wild Rapids Waterslide Park. Or stay cool at Discovery Canyon, a free play area in the city of Red Deer that features bubbling pools and relaxing tubing. When you stay at Sheraton Red Deer Hotel, you are always close to the action!

Sports Fans Love Red Deer

Time get your cheer on! Red Deer is a mecca for anyone ready to get in the game! The WHL’s Red Deer Rebels hit the ice less than 10 minutes from Sheraton Red Deer Hotel at ENMAX Centrium. Think you have what it takes to roll with the pros? Test your skills with interactive games at the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame and Museum. Don’t miss the multi-sport area with virtual baseball, basketball, football, hockey, and soccer. Of course, no visit to Western Canada is complete without the excitement of a rodeo show. Westerner Park hosts rodeos, horse shows, and concerts that will delight the whole family. Ready for some grownup fun? River Bend and Wolf Creek are just two of the 30 golf courses in the area.

Experience Alberta’s Great Outdoors

Winter, spring, summer or fall, there is always something to draw you into the great outdoors in Red Deer, AB. Pack a lunch and head to the sandy beach at Sylvan Lake Provincial Park. The park area, playground and warm shallow waters make it an ideal and safe place for families. Red Deer River offers it all: fishing, paddling, skating, hiking, mountain biking, and cross-country skiing. Adventure starts from the comfort of four-star Sheraton Red Deer Hotel!
