Airdrie is located at the junction of the Queen Elizabeth II Highway and Highway 567, just a few miles north of Calgary. Airdrie has been booming in recent times, and the city now has more than 50,000 residents. A mortgage broker working with Steven Crews is your key to getting the keys to your new home.
It’s easy to see what draws so many young families here. It’s an easy commute into Calgary for work or play, yet the property in Airdrie remains affordable. According to a recent Canadian Government Census, most of the men and women in Airdrie are in their thirties. Most are raising young families.
A move to Airdrie comes with a guarantee…that you and your family will never, ever, get bored! The city hosts year-round events that will get everyone out and about. Summer is all about AirdrieFest. A free festival featuring live music, entertainment and kid’s games. It is an excellent opportunity for parents as well, to learn about the various community and charitable organizations that operate in the city.
Participating community groups at AirdrieFest include local choirs, artisans, and even a Taoist Tai Chi Society! Tails to Tell is a local animal rescue shelter that is always looking for volunteers and fundraisers. Do you own your own small business? Many residents do, and AirdrieFest also offers local businesses the opportunity to showcase their products and services.
Winter brings an entire month full of Christmas cheer! The Airdrie Festival of Lights is held every December and is a celebration of all things Christmas. Albertans travel from across the province to take in Western Canada’s largest walk through light display. Hot chocolate will keep you warm, and local food trucks will keep you fed!
Does Dad (or Mom!) need a shot of adrenaline? Make sure you get your tickets for the Airdrie Pro Rodeo. Want to get high? The Airdrie Air Show offers aviation enthusiasts an opportunity to go for a spin in a B25 Warbird. During WW2, this fighter plane was considered the most lethal in battle. Being equipped with 18 machine guns probably helped the plane earn it’s deadly reputation.
It will set you back more than $300 if you decide you want to take to the air. However, a few minutes sitting in the cockpit (on the tarmac!) is only $10. The whole family can squeeze in and photos are allowed. A great souvenir from what would be an unforgettable day.
There’s no shortage of fun and games in Airdrie, but the city has a serious side too. With so many families and children attending school, education is always a community priority. More than 7,000 students attend a variety of primary, middle and high schools. French immersion programs and Catholic schools are available, and popular with some residents.
