Event Tourism

Event tourism is one of the highest growth potential ‘industries’ in  Spruce Grove.  While considerable progress has been achieved in developing this sector, the goal remains to draw more tourists and capture the associated retail, commercial, and hospitality expenditures.

Spruce Grove is serious about the environment.  We have sustainable neighbourhoods, implement green standards into City operations, and operate out of  LEED certified municipal buildings.  This supports industry growth within these sectors.

Destination Retail, Hospitality, Entertainment, & Accommodation

A major commercial centre for a large trade area population, Spruce Grove has exciting opportunities in this sector.  With the new Westwind Centre and the proposed multi-use event centre, we need more hotels, entertainment facilities, and full-service dining.
