Welcome to Drayton Valley!

Brave settlers first made their way to the Drayton Valley area more than 100 years ago, initially making their livings as lumbermen, trappers and, eventually, farmers. The community remained quiet for several years, until black gold was discovered in the area in 1953. The then population of 75 people boomed to 2,000 in only one year, and today Drayton Valley thrives with a young, energetic population and an optimistic outlook.

Located in Alberta's Heartland, residents make their way throughout town using the Drayton Valley Trail System. The community comes together often throughout the year for a number of events, and the town's Omniplex is the epicentre for activities, housing ice rinks, a curling rink and fitness facilities, and is equipped with several outdoor sports fields as well. The Thunder in the Valley Drag race first roared into town in 2005, and quickly took the lead as one of the most entertaining and energetic events of the year, drawing more than 2,000 spectators in 2006.
