If theatre suits your fancy, check out the Kinosoo Performing Arts Association, which brings professional entertainers to Cold Lake for performances throughout the year.

History and Heritage

Cold Lake is home to 4 Wing Air Force Base, the busiest fighter base in Canada. This means the area has a rich military aviation history, which you can explore at the Cold Lake Air Force Museum. Visitors can learn how to start an F-18 engine, marvel at radar equipment from the Cold War or sit in the cockpit of a mock Starfighter (CF-104) in the Air Force Gallery. Explore a life-size F-18 decoy, a Forward Looking Infrared Pod (FLIR) and more.

Outdoor Fun

From some of the best beaches in Alberta to the largest inland marina in Western Canada to world class hiking around the nearby Millennium Trail, there's a lot to do during the summer months. And when winter rolls around, you can enjoy every snow sport imaginable from snowboarding to ice fishing.
