WHEN YOU GO
Make Grand Prairie your basecamp for backcountry adventures but also urban pleasures. To prepare yourself for your Hang On To Your Hat experience, be sure to stock up at the following business you’ll find in town. At approximately 4.5 hours’ drive from Edmonton, Grande Prairie is the closest city to the Horse Trekking Adventures ranch.
Horse Trekking Adventures will get you and your crew smiling and sitting high in the saddle for day trips and overnight horse-packing trips until Oct. 28.
Go full cowboy with some duds from Keddie’s Tack & Western Wear - they’ve got 25,000 square feet of boots, shirts, feed, saddles and more.
Grande Prairie’s BuckWild will get you in western mode. Celebrate all things western at this sanctioned bull riding event happening Nov. 5, 6, 7, 2020.
Grab a bite at the Old Trapper Restaurant, or some sweet road-tripping snacks at Crooked Creek Donuts, Grande Prairie’s latest food truck.
