Cronquist House

Red Deer Cultural Heritage Society is responsible for the restoration and operation of the Cronquist House. Come and enjoy the unique ambiance of this beautifully restored 1912 Heritage Home in it’s picturesque setting overlooking Bower Ponds in Waskasoo Park.

The Cronquist House Tea House operates from May to September, offering light lunches and afternoon tea, from 11 am to 4 pm weekdays.

This historic building provides a facility used as a gathering place for ethnic groups and a special facility where residents of Red Deer and surrounding area have enjoyed community, ethnic, cultural and private events and functions.

The Red Deer Cultural Heritage Society has played a very significant role in the preservation and promotion of diverse cultural and ethnic traditions and in the preservation of two historic buildings in the community of Red Deer. It has contributed to a sense of community and pride in our city of Red Deer.

The Society has produced the Canada Day Celebration since 1969. This festival has provided a great opportunity for the community to celebrate its heritage and allowed for people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds to come together, learn about different cultures, and enjoy food, music, dance and traditions from around the world.

Through its renovation and operation of historic Festival Hall, since 1988, RDCHS has created a unique community facility where many ethno- cultural events and activities have been held over the years, in addition to school, community, non-profit, government, business, and family functions.
