BADAS Lifetime Achievement Award Presentations at our Annual General Meeting, January 7, 2017 at Looma Hall, Leduc County - Completed!

Each year, volunteers with BADAS and groups that use the Fairground donate THOUSANDS of hours to help deliver quality agricultural, recreational and cultural events.

BADAS presented several Lifetime Achievement Awards (our 'Hubie' Award - see more information on the Contact and Join Us page) at the Appreciation Supper. Recipients were recognized for their leadership to BADAS as well as exemplary contributions to the community over many years and, in some cases, decades!

BADAS hosted this event on Saturday, January 17. Looma Hall is located just off of Highway 21 in the Hamlet of Looma. It is 10 minutes south of Sherwood Park and 10 minutes east of Beaumont in Leduc County. Many thanks to our event sponsor, Ace Vegetation Control Services of Nisku, the dinner was excellent!!

BADAS & Friends present the 2nd Annual Rural Roots Fair - Saturday, August 26 and Sunday, August 27, 2017!

Designed with families in mind, the Rural Roots Fair was a free, fun event for every age group!

Located at the Beaumont Ag Society Fairgrounds, this event was only 10 minutes south of Edmonton, and 2 minutes West of Beaumont. There was no charge for admission or parking so hopefully everyone thanked our sponsors who gave generously to this event! f you have any questions after having a look at the RRF webpage, just email us!


The Rural Roots Fair is focused on promoting outdoor sports and agricultural activities within Alberta’s Capital Region. Running both Saturday and Sunday, we will be featuring a large Kids Area, complete with free crafts, face painting and games, a Community Booths area showcasing many local and regional outdoor as well as agricultural groups, along with presentations and demonstrations from the other major projects of BADAS. Highlighted projects will include the Gerry Patsula Community Gardens, the Gobeil Heritage Barn Project, and dog agility and obedience! 

For those interested in equine events, the Rural Roots Fair had you covered. Demonstrations and clinics on diverse equestrian disciplines and activities were completed along with horse-related kids games, and many opportunities to interact with these beautiful animals. Also new was the BADAS Breed Battle; a 5 discipline event that showcased the many breeds of horse in Alberta - putting them in competition to see which breed was the most athletic, trainable and versatile!

NEW - Beaumont Town & Country Daze Parade Form (fillable pdf) - Best before date to complete it is Saturday, June 17   :@)

BADAS hosts the annual parade around the Ring Road in Beaumont, a favorite event of Town residents and visitors of all ages. To ensure a success, entries are received by filling out the Parade Entry Form under Additional Information. Just follow the instructions to send to BADAS.

Thanks to more than 30 people who volunteered to help BADAS marshal the Parade in 2016. You are special people. BADAS General Manager Bruce advises that we had the largest number of floats in our quarter century (geez, time flies) of hosting the event - more than 60 entries.

Here's the route in 2017: it starts at 50 Ave (down the hill or west from the new CCBCC) and 57 St (Ring Road west). It heads north from that intersection at 11 AM, taking about an hour and half to complete a full tour of the Ring Road. Kinda hard to predict when it'll be at any specific location so bring lawn chairs, sunscreen and a loaded water gun for the Fire Department!

Friends of BADAS - 2017 Klondike Carriage Classic - August 12 and 13!

The Klondike Chapter of the Alberta Carriage Drivers Association has booked the Fairground for a fun weekend of carriage driving. If you haven't seen them in action, come on out! More information is available from: Dale Bolen, 587-336-1224, greymare10@gmail.com.

Distribution of casino funds between urban & rural groups - It was wrong in 2009, and it's getting 'wronger' each passing year without action to correct this inequity

BADAS participated in the consultation process on charitable gaming conducted by the MLA Committee appointed by the Honourable Solicitor General. We attended the regional meetings conducted by the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission on behalf of the MLA Committee at Edmonton and provided a written submission (under Additional Information). In one sentence - there is a HUGE inequity in the distribution of casino funds depending on where your group is located. In our case, we provide facilities and services to both urban and rural Albertans across Alberta's Capital Region but only receive less than $20,000 whereas urban groups receive more than $75,000 per casino. Before you leave this page, email us with your group's story (we know we're not alone on this one!) and it will be forwarded to our MLA for action.
