Description:

Marwayne, located 10 minutes north of the Yellowhead Highway, at the intersection of Highways 45 and 897 is a community of just over 600 friendly people that are proud of its small-town atmosphere. Situated in a picturesque location, Marwayne provides a family-oriented, welcoming lifestyle with city amenities nearby. The area is a leader in agri-business and the oil and gas industry.

ATTRACTIONS & EVENTS
Marwayne is honoured to have two businesses that have been granted Municipal Historic Distinction. One being The Historic Marwayne Hotel built in 1926 (which we have been told by some may be haunted) and the second one is No Need to Nock, a café, gift and clothing store which is located in the historic stone building on Railway Avenue. Marwayne is proud of its volunteers and strong community-minded citizens, and aims to provide quality services to both residents and visitors alike. Enjoy the many sporting events, dances and activities that take place at the hall, arena, curling rink and in the downtown core.

Their ongoing yearly events include the indoor Professional Bull Riding on April 7; the town Community-Wide Garage Sale and Treasure Hunt on May 5; the Marwayne Rodeo Street Dance on June 6; the Fall Fair in October, and December rounds out the year with the Light Up Marwayne & Christmas Tradeshow on the 1st.

EAT SHOP STAY
Marwayne has a revitalized downtown core where visitors can see newly renovated store fronts and streetscapes enhancements including park benches to relax and enjoy the atmosphere.
