Stand Out in Leduc

We’re not a highly-populated city. We’re not a metropolis of new fangled innovations, shiny skyscrapers, and bold fashionistas. And what’s more, we don’t have mountains, beaches, or 1,000 feet tourist attractions.

What we do have, is a community full of young, hardworking people. One that values a strong spirit of volunteerism, embraces an active lifestyle, and knows how to have a good time. We boast about our community because they are our greatest advantage, and your greatest asset when it comes to hosting sporting events. With a team so dedicated to your event’s success, you’ll be sure to attract attention, make noise, and most of all, stand out from the rest.

In addition to being known for our engaged community, our city is also known for its strategic location for travellers. Nestled beside the Edmonton International Airport and the CANAMEX Trade Corridor (Highway 2), we are only a hop, skip, and a jump away from you—and just 10 minutes away from Alberta’s capital city!
