Stony Plain History

The name of the town is known to come from two possible origins. The first is that the Stoney people camped in the area historically. The second possibility is Dr. James Hector, a geologist on the Palliser Expedition, noticed boulders scattered across the area. The official name for the settlement was adopted in 1892.

 

Stony Plain Arts, Culture, & Attractions

Stony Plain is home to many colourful murals that depict important figures and events of local history. These murals have earned the town the nickname "The Town with the Painted Past." The Town held a mural project in 2006 where artists were selected through open competition to paint two murals. The Parkland Potters Guild & Crooked Pot Gallery is also located within Stony Plain. Cultural institutions in the town include the Stony Plain Public Library and the Multicultural Heritage Centre.

In the summer, Stony Plain hosts two major festivals — the Blueberry Bluegrass and Country Music Festival, which is held in early August and is the largest bluegrass event in western Canada, and the Cowboy Poetry and Country Music Gathering held in late August. In December, the town sets up a large Christmas tree on Main Street and is lit throughout the Christmas season. To celebrate New Year’s Eve, the town holds its Family Fest event at Rotary Park. Family Fest features ice skating on an outdoor pond, hot chocolate and fireworks.
