Village of Irma
"Home of Great Fastball"
Description:As you drive through the beautiful parkland in east central Alberta, the village of Irma invites you to stop and stay awhile.
Learn about the history of the area during a visit to the Irma Museum. The museum is comprised of the original Jean (Elford) Paré house (Company's Coming cookbook author) and a tiny Anglican church. Both buildings are filled with displays of artifacts of days gone by and are located at the north end of Main Street. A new building opened in 2016 with Irving and Doreen Bell's collection of over 400 antique lamps and a wide variety of other artifacts from the 1800s and early 1900s.

On the August long weekend, take in Irma Daze which features a parade, Ranchers' Rodeo, Kids' Zone activities, and bench exhibits. On the second Saturday in December, Santa Day will give visitors a chance to go on a hayride, take in a Christmas market and more.
