Victoria Day Long Weekend & Grande Prairie Stompede Motel Accommodations
Victoria Day long weekend is often considered to be the unofficial start of the summer season in Canada. At The Lodge Motor Inn, we are excited about the upcoming events happening in and around town this time of year that can all be easily accessed from our Grande Prairie motel.
Here's a sneak peek at Sunday Fun Day at Historic Dunvegan over the long weekend, the annual Grande Prairie Stompede at the end of May, and a new art exhibit at the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie that you can check out while visiting for either event.
Sunday Fun Day (Victoria Day long weekend)
On May 19th, come out to Historic Dunvegan Provincial Park off Highway 2 for the well-loved annual family event known as Sunday Fun Day. Historic Dunvegan Provincial Park is a beautiful site home to historic buildings. The event will be taking place from 2 pm to 4 pm and will include fun activities for kids such as crafts and games. There is no registration required to attend Sunday Fun Day and entry is by donation.
Grande Prairie Stompede (May 29 - June 2)
The main event of the season, the annual Grande Prairie Stompede at Evergreen Park is entering its 42nd year. The five-day event consists of a professional rodeo, professional chuckwagon racing, and amateur chuckwagon racing. It is the first chuckwagon racing show of the year as well as the first big event of the pro rodeo outdoor season. The rodeo performances include saddle bronc, bull riding, team roping, steer wrestling, and more.
On top of the rodeo excitement, there is an on-site midway complete with rides, games, and delicious snacks. You'll also find beer gardens in the TARA Centre. As many as 50,000 spectators attend the Grande Prairie Stompede every year
Mercury Exhibit at Art Gallery of Grande Prairie
Mercury is a unique solo exhibition of works by artist Parker Thiessen that opened on March 7th and will be running until June 13th. Thiessen is a graphic designer, musician, sound artist, and filmmaker who creates immersive sensory installations through the use of visual stimulus and audio soundscapes. A stop by the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie to check out the Mercury Exhibit will make a great addition to any visit to the Grande Prairie area this spring.
