This fall, the River Valley Alliance introduces the first annual EPCOR RiverFest. This brand new festival will celebrate outdoor recreation and the joy of discovering nature along the length of the Capital Region River Valley Park, from the Town of Devon, Parkland County and Leduc County, through the City of Edmonton, to Strathcona County, Sturgeon County and the City of Fort Saskatchewan.
Over three days in three different locations – and all along the length of the river valley park system – the EPCOR RiverFest will bring community groups, municipal services, retail businesses and corporate partners together to offer the people of the Capital Region a festival worthy of the river valley that we all treasure.
Come paddle with us!
River Valley Alliance (RVA)
“River Valley Alliance is a non-profit, charitable organization established to preserve, protect and enhance Alberta’s Capital Region River Valley, create one of the largest river valley parks in the world, and leave a legacy for generations to come.”
RVA Vision To create a continuous integrated river valley park system in the Alberta Capital Region, from Devon through Parkland County, Leduc County, Edmonton, Strathcona County and Sturgeon County to Fort Saskatchewan.
RVA Mission The River Valley Alliance has a compelling goal – to preserve, protect and enhance the river valley – to create one of the largest river valley parks in the world, and to create a legacy for generations to come.
The Capital Region River Valley Parks (CRRVP)
There are three key words that epitomize what the River Valley Alliance is all about. They are:
We can preserve this river valley for the benefit of our future generations.
We can protect the pristine areas of the river valley to ensure they remain the home of a wide range of wildlife and fauna.
At the same time, we can enhance appropriate areas of the river valley by improving access, developing amenities and in doing so enhancing our quality of life.
The RVA vision balances protecting the natural capital of the river valley while ensuring our residents and visitors can access and enjoy the river valley for a variety of active and passive pursuits.
The Capital Region River Valley Park covers 18,000 acres linking over 88 kilometres through the North Saskatchewan River valley. It is destined to become a world-class river front park that would be to the Capital Region what Stanley Park is to Vancouver or Central Park is to New York.
