Located right between Calgary and Edmonton, Red Deer is a growing central Alberta city of more than 100,000 people.
In terms of arts and culture, Red Deer has you covered, too. With seven art galleries - including the city's only museum, the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery - live theatre and comedy at the Scott Block Theatre, and a collection of public art in Art Alley, creative inspiration is never far away.
If you're into sports, the Western Hockey League's Red Deer Rebels, coached by Stanley Cup Champion Brent Sutter play just a short drive away at the ENMAX Centrium. The Rebels have long been a factory for NHL talent, with players such as Dion Phaneuf, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, and Cam Ward playing their junior hockey in the city.
