There may be no better time to enjoy the stunning city of Red Deer than in the late summer months. The heat has subsided, which makes for cooler temperatures, so it’s the perfect time to get out and experience the city and its various events and festivals. One visit to Red Deer will leave you wanting more and may even be enticing enough for you to find your dream home. Here is a quick look at some of the highlights that will be going on in and around the city in late summer.
Red Deer Cruise Night
The downtown business association of Red Deer has worked very hard to bring various events to the city for all ages. One of the most popular events is the Red Deer Cruise Night happening on August 27 from 6 to 9 p.m. This is a family event so everyone is welcome. The Cruise Night features lots of old cars, some of Red Deer’s finest food vendors and live music. Come out and enjoy an evening of vintage cars and good old family fun.
The Market is a Red Deer fixture and runs every Saturday morning from the May long weekend until the Thanksgiving long weekend. It operates from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and is located just south of the Red Deer recreational centre. With over 300 vendors, there is something for everyone. Late summer is an ideal time to come and enjoy all of the fresh local produce that is offered in the Market. Besides produce, the Market boasts artisan foods, crafts, jewellery and other knick-knacks. Everyone is welcome; however, the Market is a pet free event.
Eagle Mountain Ridge
Late summer is also a great time to get outside and enjoy some cooler temperatures and great local scenery. A hike along Eagle Mountain Ridge offers stunning views of the Alberta flatlands and the majestic Rocky Mountains. The hike is 15 km round trip on a well-established trail and is of moderate difficulty. Pack a lunch and enjoy some great Red Deer scenery.
There is so much to see and do in late summer in Red Deer. Take some time to immerse yourself in the bustling Market of the city and get to know some of the local artisans.
