Cold Lake Puts in Joint Bid to Host Summer Games

A bid to host the 2018 Alberta Summer Games in the Lakeland has been submitted to the Alberta Sport Connection.

The City of Cold Lake, the Town of Bonnyville, and the Municipal District of Bonnyville No. 87 came together to create a powerful representation of the Lakeland communities. Designed to showcase the natural beauty of the area and the region’s modern amenities, the bid package covers over a dozen sports that would be hosted during the 2018 Alberta Summer Games.

Additional support came from 4 Wing, local school districts, health and emergency services, sport organizations, transportation services and media, who stepped up and voiced their support, should the bid be successful.

The winning bid will be announced by the end of the year, and if the Lakeland is successful, the bid committee will be looking for a Games Chairperson to lead the organization and running of the Games. Volunteers will also be sought if successful.

The bid committee is confident in the strength of the package that was submitted, and hopes the Lakeland will host the 2018 Alberta Summer Games.
