Expand your horizons at  The Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery as they present their World War Women exhibit featuring the contributions made to Canada's participation in the First and Second World wars. Their galleries are open 10 am - 4:30 pm and are free to visit however donations are greatly appreciated.

Take a walk at the Gaetz Lakes Sanctuary behind the Kerry Wood Nature Centre. Since 1924, the Gaetz Lakes have been protected as a federal migratory bird sanctuary. Now part of Waskasoo Park, the Sanctuary's 118 hectares (almost 300 acres) are set aside as a home for plants, mammals, birds, and other wildlife. Five kilometres of trails, a bird blind, and viewing decks introduce you to various habitats.

The Alberta Sports Hall of Fame pays homage to some of Alberta's most significant sports heroes. They also have a multitude of interactives, from their multisport area to their Treadwall climbing wall, just a few of the many family-friendly things to do.

Visit the Gasoline Alley Indoor Farmer's Market, open Friday through Sunday for some fantastic high-quality local products or perhaps check out their Market Kitchen opened Thursday as well. You can grab lunch at some of their local restaurants like Taco Monster or maybe sample some of the local craft beer from Craft Beer Commonwealth or Troubled Monk.

Marvel at the larger-than-life murals in Downtown Red Deer located in the alleyways surrounding our historical Ross Street. There are a variety of excellent shops and cafes for you to discover, and if you have the time, our City of Red Deer's Heritage Walking Tours might be fun.

Memphis Blues BBQ House

For the Foodie, our restaurant scene is a culinary delight, from a bit of a taste of Mexico at the Las Palmeras to delicious barbecue at Memphis Blues BBQ House. Breakfast at Glenn's Family Restaurant is always a pleasure and if you love steak, check out the Westlake Grill's Big Bend Ranch Bison Ribeye locally raised. Anthony's Italian Kitchen is sure to please with dishes like their Linguini Pescatore or perhaps it's Authentic Neapolitan Pizza at Famoso Pizzeria so good. Lunch and a little shopping at the Little Red Barn Café & Gift is a fun afternoon, and their Artisan Sandwiches are made to perfection. Try the Caesars that eat like a meal at Cilantro & Chive, or maybe dig into the Turkey Meatball Poutine at Bos Bar and Stage. There is nothing better than gathering for some social bites at Chillabong's Bar & Grill or maybe going for High Tea at the Cronquist House scones & Devonshire Tea yum. These are just a few of the many delicious restaurants that are here for your dining pleasure.
