About Okotoks and The Western Wheel

Nestled along the Sheep River Valley in the heart of the Alberta Foothills, the Town of Okotoks is a young, vibrant and friendly community of 28,000 residents. Our picturesque town, located just 15 minutes south of Calgary, is a vibrant place that offers residents and visitors exciting and enticing dining, shopping, cultural and recreational experiences.

Okotoks is a dynamic, growing community, reflecting all the best qualities of small town life, with the amenities expected in a larger community. Our streets are safe, folks are friendly and we take pride in our heritage and our approach to crafting our future. As a sustainable municipality - balancing the social, economic and environmental needs of our residents, we are recognized globally as a leader in providing a healthy community for people to live, work and play.

Okotoks offers attractive accommodation options including hotels, bed & breakfasts and camping to extend your day trip to an overnight stay! While you're here, we encourage you to visit our breathtaking Sheep River Valley pathway system and golf courses, peruse our museum and art galleries or take part in the many year-round family activities that Okotoks proudly hosts.

Participate in events and festivals such as the Rotary Soap Box Derby, Spirit of Okotoks Parade & Children's Festival, BuskersFest, Taste of Okotoks, Okotoks Pro Rodeo, and Holiday Light Up to name a few.

The Western Wheel has published since 1976 and has been named 'Best Community Newspaper' in Canada twice in the past five years.
