More Southern Alberta Southern Alberta

Southern Alberta’s rural charms, lakeside villages and western history make for all kinds of adventures you just couldn’t experience anywhere else. ● Cowboy culture: Hop on a horse for a day or three. You’ll see firsthand what indigenous people, early pioneers and ranchers saw in this part of the world when it was still a wild, wild west. ● Theatre: Dinosaurs and Jesus? Yeah, it happens in the world-renowned Canadian Badlands Passion Play. ● Go local: Hit a rural or urban farmers market for local produce and grass-fed beef, pickles and preserves, artisan crafts and homegrown entertainment.

Leighton Art Centre is where art and nature come together in Southern Alberta’s Foothills. More than just a unique historic home once owned by a pair of renowned artists, it's a vibrant and open space for creativity, inspiring all who visit to explore, appreciate and create. In 2012, Barbara Leighton - a woman who lived and unconventional life and the Centre's founder - was posthumously honoured as one of '100 Outstanding Albertans' in celebration of the 100th Anniversary of the Calgary Stampede. Her legacy is a beautiful one indeed.
