County of Vermilion River

Rural Roots & Routes

Visitor Information Centre

Vermilion Visitor Information Centre, 4606-52 St, Vermilion; Hwy 41 780-853-6593 Open year round.

We welcome you to experience the Vermilion River Region, which spans thousands of hectares of aspen parkland, tracts of rolling prairie and the river valley vistas of the North Saskatchewan, Battle, and Vermilion Rivers. Events and attractions range from those involving agri-tourism to those related to culture and recreation.

Antique shops, gift stores, greenhouses, artisans, diners, and farm-gate fare lead the curious shopper on a cross-country treasure hunt. In particular, the County is proud to be home to the Old School Cheesery and neighbouring Red Feather Ridge. The Vermilion River Region hosts many professional events each summer, including the Lea Park Rodeo north of Marwayne, CPCA Chuckwagon Racing in Dewberry, Professional Bull Riding in Marwayne, and several fairs that highlight the region's agricultural and western roots.

For a quiet afternoon, take a trip south of Highway 16 to picnic and bird-watch at Lindsay Evans Park. There are five golf courses throughout the County of Vermilion River to challenge golfers of all skill levels. Mount Joy Snow Resort (, southeast of Kitscoty, offers downhill skiing and snow board opportunities. For a unique winter adventure, take a sled dog tour at Seppala Siberian Tours, located near Kitscoty.
