Celebrates 100 Years! SOUTHEAST OF EDMONTON

It is with great pleasure that Alliance welcomes you “home” to celebrate 100 years of the good life in “Paradise”, as former Mayor Fankhanel loved to call her beloved community. The year was 1916 when settlers started to arrive and stake their claims. Tom Edwards had the job of buying the right of way for the Canadian Northern Railway - he asked that the townsite be named “Alliance” after his hometown in Ohio, USA. The rail arrived in January 1916 with many townsfolk out to watch with great excitement. On August 26, 1918 the Village of Alliance was incorporated. On June 30 & July 1, 2018, it will be a wonderful celebration in Alliance, a community located in the beautiful rolling hills of the Battle River Valley.
