Shopping

& Nightlife

Downtown Whitecourt

Experience the sights and sounds of Whitecourt's downtown. Stroll the streets of Whitecourt and browse the many specialty and boutique shops. During the summer months, the Whitecourt Farmers' Market is held every Tuesday at the Legion Hall.

Whitecourt has a variety of shopping including gift shops, clothing stores, and craft stores that you won't find anywhere else. We are also home to larger retailers such as Wal-Mart, Home Hardware, and Canadian Tire just to name a few. Our local Chamber of Commerce can assist you if you are looking for something specific or will tip you off to some local favorites.

In between window shopping, take a break at either Friendship Park or Anniversary Square. Both downtown parks have picnic tables and benches for you to sit, sip a coffee, and enjoy the day.

There are also a number of restaurants available to fulfill whatever you are craving. Sample the wide range of cultural restaurants or snack on chicken wings at a local pub.

If you are looking to unwind after a day of exploring, hit the dance floor at one of our local nightclubs or take in a big game at a local pub.

Don't miss out on the weekly Farmers' Market that runs May through September in downtown Whitecourt.
