Welcome to Lethbridge – A bright choice for meetings and events.
Lethbridge is a city of nearly 100,000 situated between the prairies and the slopes of the Rocky Mountains in southern Alberta. While, Lethbridge boasts a low cost of living, a stable local economy and low unemployment, our best attributes are the easy lifestyle, the community it fosters, and the possibilities it creates.
When you choose Lethbridge for your meeting or event, you’ll find a diverse population, two modern post-secondary institutions, a thriving arts and culture scene and top-notch recreational facilities, all set against a stunning natural environment within a community that prides itself on its small-city charm. Lethbridge is only two hours by car or bus from Calgary and an hour from the U.S. border. Direct flights to Lethbridge airport from Calgary and Edmonton are also available.
Our walkable downtown is filled with unique arts and culture attractions, including the Southern Alberta Art Gallery (SAAG), and an ever-growing roster of independent boutiques, cafes, live music venues and restaurants. In the middle of it all is Galt Gardens, the city’s urban oasis and home to a year-round slate of events, including Love and Records (western Canada’s largest outdoor record fair), Oktoberfest, Shakespeare in the Park, Lethbridge Pride Fest, National Aboriginal Day celebrations and many more.
Lethbridge also averages 320 days of sunshine each year, which means there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Head into the Oldman River coulee and experience our extensive network of walking/running trails. Hit the links at one of the five excellent golf courses within city limits, including Paradise Canyon Golf Resort, the number one course in Southern Alberta and one of Golf Digest Magazine’s top 60 courses in Canada. Visit the award-winning Nikka Yuko Japanese Garden for an unforgettable cultural experience combining the beauty of nature in a serene setting that is perfect for exploring or creating a memorable event.
From large banquet rooms and trade show venues to convention spaces and breakout rooms, Lethbridge has a full range of venues for your meeting or event, along with a host of lodging options for business travellers looking for affordability, convenience and connection to industry.
