High River is a fast growing town with many year round activities. You can visit the Museum of the Highwood, which is a historic sandstone Canadian Pacific Railway station, or walk the approximately 7 miles of paved pathways that wind past all of the town's recreational facilities and parks. Stroll around town and view Highwood's past displayed in murals painted on the side of many of the buildings.
High River's most famous attraction is The North American Chuckwagon Races, held during Weadick Week along with the Guy Weadick Memorial Professional Rodeo. The activities are named after a well-known local cowboy who helped found the Calgary Stampede.
In keeping with its strong western heritage, High River also hosts the Little Britches Rodeo and parade annually on the May long weekend.
The Little Britches Rodeo has been the starting place of many champion cowboys from the area, who get their first taste of rodeo participation between the ages of two and sixteen.
