About the NRTA
The Newell Regional Tourism Association is a collective organization of member businesses and social organizations with the intent of creating awareness and promotion of local County of Newell events. This is particularly useful for helping to promote the local tourism industry throughout the County.

The Newell Regional Tourism Association or NRTA was established in 2007 and has been growing since its creation. It now has 25 members and has been providing marketing for events and its member organizations throughout the County of Newell, and as far as Travel Alberta. There is a growing demand for tourism destinations in Alberta, and the NRTA is attempting to coordinate many others in the County of Newell to ensure that our communities do not miss potential opportunities.

If you or your business/organization is interested in joining the NRTA, please email us at: slendersw@countyofnewell.ab.ca

About the Newell Region

There are lots of exciting events in the Newell region to keep you entertained throughout the year. The winter months have been filled with curling, music concerts, dinners and fundraisers. The Newell Regional Tourism Association encourages everyone to participate in as many events as possible.

The Newell Region has an abundance of campgrounds in the area, some of which are Lake Newell, Crawling Valley Reservoir and Rolling Hills Reservoir. If you enjoy boating, swimming, fishing, sailing or bird watching there is a place for you here. We also have a wide variety of sites to see including historic and educational as well as a multitude of recreational attractions and events. Some of the sites include The Brooks Aqueduct – a National/Provincial Historical Site, Dinosaur Provincial Park – A World Heritage Site, Bassano Dam, Brooks and District Museum, and the EID Historical Park with a working elevator. Some events that take place each year are the Brooks Kinsmen Pro Rodeo, Bassano Amateur Rodeo, Canada Day Events in various communities, Shakespeare in the Park, Patricia Rodeo, Newell Sailing Regatta and Cactus Pheasant Curling Classic.
