Visit the Sheep and Goats
Have you ever seen a shepherd and sheepdogs herding a flock of 50 fuzzy sheep in a city? Now you can! Fort Saskatchewan uses sheep and goats for grazing and weed management, and has been doing so for 30 years. You can visit the sheep from June 3 until September 4 from Thursday to Sunday, 11:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Fort Saskatchewan also uses goats as a safe environmentally friendly alternative to weed management. You may see goats at West River’s Edge (WRE), where they’ll cover up to 96 hectares and will treat affected areas up to three times over the summer and fall.
Participate in the City Wide Garage Sale
Someone else’s trash is another’s treasure, and you never know what you might find during the City Wide Garage Sale! Every August, the city hosts a city-wide garage sale where participants can rent space downtown or add themselves to a garage sale map. Spend the day driving around the city hunting for the best finds, or host your own garage sale!
Fort Saskatchewan has no shortage of festivals year-round, especially during the summer. Bring the whole family together for the Family Festival in June, and don’t miss out on the annual CO-OP Movie Under the Stars in August. The city also has its own Canada Day event with a Car Show and Shine, farmers’ market, live entertainment, parade, food and drinks, and, of course, fireworks.
At the end of the season, you won’t want to miss the annual Sheep Leaving Parade, where residents gather to say goodbye to the beloved grazing sheep. Arrive early for the chance to feed the sheep some carrots!
