Edgerton Community ProfileThe Village of Edgerton is a “Friendly Oasis” of 400 located south of Highway 14 and a short drive east of Wainwright. We have a vibrant agricultural sector and a healthy oil and gas presence in the region. Nearby CFB Wainwright and the opportunity involved in servicing the Armed Forces are an added benefit to our area. We are immensely proud of the homegrown and award winning Ribstone Creek Brewery. Ribstone was founded in the Fall of 2012 and hosts tours every Saturday from 1-3pm. We are home to Connaye's Alternative Healing Center, which provides massage, ear candling, coaching and detoxification services, as well as offering a range of alternative wellness products. The Inner Goddess Bellydance studio is also located in Edgerton, offering wide range of classes for all ages. Edgerton has a strong and varied local business community that offers many services, including groceries, restaurants, a hotel and tavern, beauty shops, automotive and heavy duty mechanics, liquor stores, electricians, welders, carpenters, fuel, hardware and sporting goods, financial services and many more. We also have a flourishing home-based business sector.
If you are looking for a place to move your family; looking to start or relocate a business and you are looking for community connection, we invite you to come and explore the community and all that is offered in our Friendly Oasis of Edgerton.
Amenities offered in Edgerton include a K-12 Public School; a healthy business community; recreational opportunities through a Golf Course, Skating Arena, Curling Arena, Ball Diamonds, Sports Grounds, playgrounds and more. The outdoors is just 5 minutes from your door and there are three lakes within a 10 minute drive.
Edgerton is located 85 km southwest of Lloydminster; 35 km east of the Town of Wainwright and CFB Wainwright at the junction of Hwy 610 & Hwy 894. Military Members tell us they chose Edgerton as their community because when the sun is always at their back on their drive to and from work at CFB Wainwright.
Our business owners are ready to meet the needs of visitors and locals alike with the hospitality and friendly smile Edgerton is known for.
We are an ambitious village, in the midst of developing a marketing and branding strategy to increase our visibility to potential new business owners and industry stakeholders; this involves increased highway signage, new entrance signs to Edgerton, our brand new website and a more intentional effort towards regional cooperation with our neighbouring communities. We have a newly renovated skating arena, an active curling club, a challenging nine hole golf course nestled in the sand hills, and are in the beginning stages of construction on a new combined municipal office and emergency services facility. We are also home to the “Teacups to Tractors” Edgerton Museum complex, featuring the rare Hugo Viewegar autochrome collection and history to suit any palate.
Along with our ambition comes the desire to grow our community. Edgerton has many opportunities for new residents and business owners. We have a new residential subdivision, available commercial and industrial spaces, and an ingrained, buy-local attitude. One service we are sorely lacking is a local plumber, which has been on our wishlist for some time and the community is ready and willing to group together to make this need become a reality. An ambitious plumber would be extremely busy and well supported should Edgerton be chosen as a base of operations from which to serve the village and the surrounding area.
The Village is also eager to announce that our Centennial Homecoming is fast approaching! Edgerton will be celebrating 100 years on August 11-13, 2017. We look forward to seeing many new and old faces at the events, which will include parades, outdoor concerts, theater shows and many more!
We are excited to welcome new residents and new businesses. We have a vibrant community spirit and our community organizations help contribute to this. We pride ourselves on being a loyal village that holds the quieter, more peaceful lifestyle close to heart but also looks toward the future with hope and confidence. We can also be reached at the Village Office at 780-755-3933, on Facebook under “Village of Edgerton,” or you can stop in for a visit!
