Explore Stony Plain on the go! Horse and Wagon Tours are returning this summer. Join the local tour to learn about Stony Plain’s history and discover the stories behind the community’s murals.

Horse and Wagon Tours are a seasonal series that work to promote Stony Plain’s history and public art. Guests can climb aboard a horse-drawn wagon and listen to a local guide share insights on cultural heritage and the history of Stony Plain’s murals as they travel down the avenues.

“Stony Plain has a rich cultural history and is home to several unique tourism opportunities. The Horse and Wagon Tours are a wonderful example of how Stony Plain and local organizations are working to promote tourism in the community while honouring our roots,” says Mayor William Choy.

“The Horse and Wagon Tours offer visitors a closer look at our community in a format that is unique to Stony Plain. There are over 40 murals around town and plenty of history to dive into, and what better way to learn about Stony Plain’s history than in a horse-drawn wagon?” says Culture and Tourism Development Officer Chantelle Laberge.

The summer tour series will run in July and August on the following dates:

  • July 9, 11:30AM and 1PM
  • July 23, 11:30AM and 1PM
  • August 13, 11:30AM and 1PM
