Canada’s largest outdoor stage is hidden in the Alberta Badlands

Drumheller is a one-of-a-kind destination with some of the most unbelievable sights, but few in Canada are as notable as The Badlands Amphitheater in Alberta – the largest of its kind in the entire country.

Unknown to a surprising few, this stunning venue seats 2,500 people and is surrounded by mountains, hills and (more often than not) a clear sky.

From live theater shows and the opera to fireworks, and outdoor movies, this spot has really seen it all – including a Vanlife festival where those who live on the road were encouraged to partake in a weekend of music, food and more.

Heck, later this month The Barenaked Ladies and Tom Cochrane will headline their ‘Canadian Icon’s Series,’ and honestly – we’re inclined to check it out.

Comparable to those found in Greece and Italy, this outdoor stage holds some of the most beautiful shows in Canada – so check it out!

As we mentioned, not only do organizers hold ‘high-brow events,’ but they also have casual daytime romps, like their upcoming Roots, Blues and BBQ festival.

For more information or to see their upcoming events schedule, head over to their website below.

Even if music, food and fun aren’t your thing – it’s still an architectural wonder worth visiting while you’re in the area! There’s really nothing like it
