Last week in the Edmonton Properties blog Team Love communicated our new focus towards smaller family communities within the Edmonton region. Doing so allows us to provide an unprecedented level of personalized service to prospective home buyers and sellers. Two communities in particular, Stony Plain and Spruce Grove, are among the most attractive for families in the Edmonton area and Team Love has taken up residence within these communities, so to speak. With our previous post singing the praises of Stony Plain and its claim to one of the most unique small town attractions in Canada, we thought it only fair to shed some light on the Arts & Culture scene of its sibling – Spruce Grove.
Arts & Culture in Spruce Grove
Spruce Grove Art Gallery (Melcor Cultural Centre, 35 5th Avenue) – You can’t start an arts & culture piece on any town without mention of the local Art Gallery. From local to international works the Allied Arts Council of Spruce Grove curates some incredible works for the public’s eye to feast on. Visit www.alliedartscouncil.com for current and up and coming exhibits.
Horizon Stage Performing Arts Centre (315 Jespersen Avenue) – Succinctly coined as being both intimate and acoustically superior to any other performance venue in the area, every show at Horizon Stage ends up being deemed a success. Whether your tastes are for R & B or accordion, comedy skits or dance numbers, the calendar at Horizon Stage Performing Arts Centre is packed with something for everyone throughout the entire year. Visit www.horizonstage.com for more information.
Spruce Grove Grain Elevator Museum (120 Railway Avenue) – Don’t laugh when we suggest that a visit to the Spruce Grove Grain Elevator Museum is a culturally enriching experience. Picturesque from the exterior the museum and grounds open up the imagination of all that enter to the agriculturally significant role that Spruce Grove plays in the history of the province. Today, the museum is host to insightful walking tours, farmer’s markets, carnivals, fundraisers, and more. Visit www.sprucegroveagsociety.com for more information.
Melcor Cultural Centre (35 5th Avenue) – Mentioned above as the home to the Spruce Grove Art Gallery the Melcor Cultural Centre also hosts the Spruce Grove Public Library and is in essence the core of the arts & culture scene in the community. Importantly, the facility also holds the Melcor DevelopmentsMunicipal Art Collection – a collective of 170 (and growing!) original works by predominantly local Alberta artists. Feel free to take a sneak peek at the collection before joining the Spruce Grove community as a full time resident.
Whether you are buying our selling in Spruce Grove or simply seeking real estate advice from trusted Stony Plain and Spruce Grove Realtors, you can contact Team Love anytime. We’ll show you the difference between Realtors that serve the community and big city realty groups, that don’t.
