BVJ is hosting Small Town Saturday Night Contest

Big Valley Jamboree will celebrate its 25th anniversary in
2017. Over those 25 years, BVJ has enjoyed the support
of hundreds of thousands of loyal fans from across North
America. A major and integral part of that support comes
from rural communities throughout Alberta. As a “thank-
you” for this ongoing support, The Big Valley Jamboree
has decided to award one of these communities with a
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to put their small town on
the map by bringing back one of the most successful
endeavors in the history of Big Valley Jamboree.
A “mini” Big Valley Jamboree will be awarded to one
lucky rural Albertan community. All the excitement of the
festival, including some of Canada’s finest country music
entertainers, will be coming to a small town in Alberta!
The grand prize includes a concert headlined by Canadian
country music artist Gord Bamford plus a songwriter’s
circle performance. Big Valley’s Master of Ceremonies,
Danny Hooper, will MC the event. In addition to the
excitement of hosting this once-in-a-lifetime concert
experience, the winning community can use the event as a
fundraiser to support a local charity or municipal initiative
of their choice. for more contest details

Safe Sledding/Tobogganing Information

Sledding/Tobogganing Information

For a safer outdoor winter experience, the Community Services Department has established two ‘safe sled hills’ for sledding and tobogganing. These hills are fenced, signed, have proper outruns, and straw bales in place to identify the sledding area.

The two areas are:

Jubilee Park (47 Avenue & 50 Street) has a light that turns on at 4:30 pm and turns off at 10:30 pm

Grand Drive Park (West of 58 Street on the South side of Grand Drive)  does not have a light

We discourage use of any other areas for safety reasons.

For more information call Community Services at 780.672.9195.

Camrose County’s Living Heritage

Camrose County’s Living Heritage Project –  is a rural museum without walls!

The Living Heritage project is an ever evolving collection of stories, structures and adventure points; connecting people, places, and nature; with history, geography, and the environment within Camrose County.   We invite you to grab a cup of tea, and wander around the County a little.

If you’d like to digitally connect, click on The Living Heritage Project here:    You will keep in mind that memories may have wandered at times; and in collecting these written and verbal stories, we make no promises that things unfolded exactly as told. These are teaspoons of recollection as we heard them, and we are simply sharing where ever we can.

Find us on Facebook and Twitter if that’s more your thing.     But better yet, experience some of our treasures by traveling around in person. There will be gravel roads and fresh air involved! Find out why around here, we believe in respecting the footprints of the past.   We choose to follow them into our future.
