Let’s Explore Becoming a Rosebuddy

Rosebud, Alberta  –  Our Common Narrative

Rosebud as the Cultural Heart of the Canadian Badlands. 

Join a community of confident skills and varied interests. Together we create safe place for its citizens and guests that is creative and resilient. We are committed to be a welcoming home for all.

Explore is a valley full of stories and longings: stories of nomadic people living here since the last Great Ice Age, stories of vast migrations, of settlers who came to start new lives, stories of cowboys who built sprawling ranches, of the last great open-range cattle round-up, stories of building a farming community, stories of rural survival in the face of overwhelming international urbanization.  Rosebud’s unique cultural history has flourished as a national treasure.

Rosebud has attracted writers, composers, artists, families and international friends. In winter its snow covered valley waits for the summer’s blaze of glory. But during all seasons it is open for new friends.

Today Rosebud’s heart is its citizens who tell these stories, at home or on the world’s stages networking with other creative people. It is its farmers whose productivity feeds a hungry world. Come, celebrate with us in festivals and country living.

We inviteyou to hear its stories, see its beauty and share in its community values. Be a citizen for a day, or a lifetime. Come away for a little while from the stress of urban pressures, or the sadness of faltering communities. Let us become part of your story, and you part of ours.  Come as a student to study here. Bring your children, who with wide-eyed wonder will travel to times only imagined. Spend hours floating down our lazy river or visiting our rural attractions. Why visit any other place when we long to have you here?

Why raise your family, or build your business, or launch you career anywhere else?
Rosebud is a quaint and out of the way place, but also a global centre attracting talent and visitors from around the world.
