Come and Explore the Friendly

Village of Alix!

Welcome to our Website!

Mayor's Welcome

 Come see Alix Gator!

As the proud Mayor of the picturesque and progressive Village of Alix, I would like to extend an invitation to you and your family to come see what we have to offer. 

The Village of Alix has always prided itself on its agricultural heritage, strong volunteer spirit, many playgrounds and parks, and rich history.

Our Main Street boasts the Alix Wagon Wheel Museum that will take you back to days gone by, when settlers came to this area and put their many talents to work. One of the Famous Five was from the Village of Alix. Irene Parlby was instrumental in encouraging women to be involved in serving their country and community at that time. She was the first woman Cabinet Minister in Alberta when she was elected in 1912, which is a feat we as Albertans, and indeed Canadians, should be proud of!!

The Village has many businesses of various sizes and varieties, as well as a Registry Office and Public Library.

During the winter months, bring your skates or your skis and enjoy the outdoors. Skating, cross country skiing, and tobogganing is all available on, and around Alix Lake. Skating, shinny and organized hockey is always going on in our recently refurbished arena. 

Many community events occur between May and October, such as the Alix Rodeo, Alix Days, Canada Day festivities, Alix Show & Shine, and the farmers’ market.

Our hidden jewel is the 11- site campground, playground and beautiful family friendly beach at Alix Lake. We have a 6 km walking nature trail around Alix Lake, which is enjoyed by people from all across Alberta. There is also a beautiful 9-hole course located just east of the Village.

We also have a pre-kindergarten -12 public school that takes great pride in promoting a first class education for all kids in, and around the Village. We are also blessed with great volunteers that work with children, seniors, and families alike.   

We pride ourselves on promoting economic growth, a reasonable tax rate, and many other services you just won’t find in the larger centres.

Stop by and see us, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed!

Mayor Rob Fehr
