Meetings & Events

Located on the shores of the Red Deer River just outside city limits, Historic Fort Normandeau’s buildings and grounds provide a serene location for a your next meeting or event; whether you are a non-profit organization booking space for strategic planning, a club looking for a seasonal meeting location, or a corporation seeking a staff retreat.

We can assist with the setup for your meeting or event and provide the most amazing breakout space available. Take further advantage of this distinct venue by booking a walk or talk for your group with one of our Interpreters.

Stopping House

The Stopping House is a recreation of the original Fort at Red Deer Crossing.


Located within the Interpretive Centre, the Theatre has a 90” wall-mounted television.

Upper Grounds

The Upper Grounds include the grassy field adjacent to the Red Deer River at the northernmost part of the Fort Normandeau property, as well as the picnic shelter, which is a permanent structure with a large central fire pit.
