St. Albert is a city of botanical arts and is the second largest city in the Edmonton metropolitan-region. In the past, many miles of farmland divided Edmonton and St. Albert, but due to Edmonton’s expansion they are now both part of the same urban area.
St. Albert was founded in 1861 by Father Albert Lacombe, who built a small chapel. The location was advantageous since there was easy access to wood and water, fertile soil, and the transience of first nations people who regularly stopped nearby.
St. Albert has great arts and cultural offerings; the Northern Alberta Children’s Festival runs each May, one of the largest of its kind in North America. The festival attracts upwards of 40,000 people. There is also a rodeo, a well-visited farmer’s market, and the Rock’n August 5-day music festival.
