Village_of_kitscoty

Kitscoty is situated at the junction of the Yellowhead Highway 16 and Highway 897, midway between Edmonton and Saskatoon.

The first settlers came to the district in 1905, and Kitscoty was incorporated as a village in 1911. Kitscoty originally serviced a trading area stretching from Cold Lake in the north to the Battle River in the south. Kitscoty is named after a famous cromlech, three large stones in a tripod arrangement, found near a settlement in England known as Kits’Coty House. Kit’s Coty House or Kitigern’s Coty House (translated as Kitgern’s Stone House) is the remains of a Neolithic tomb site of Kitigern.

Kitscoty is proud to be celebrating in 2011 with our Kitscoty Centennial Homecoming Celebration to be held August 18-21. Please join us as we celebrate 100 years as the Village of Kitscoty!

Today, Kitscoty is a vibrant village full of opportunity. It is home to the one of a kind Automated Tank Manufacturing, the Canadian distributor for Salt City Candles, the “finest jerky on the Yellowhead”, antique shops, plus all the businesses and amenities a village needs to sustain itself. Kitscoty is proud of its Regional park with golfing, ball diamonds, horseshoe pits, high speed internet, and camping facilities. The new Centennial Park and Heritage Park with beautiful walking trails are enjoyed by residents and visitors alike. Kitscoty is a great place to live with new residential developments and lots of opportunity for new commercial development.

Our slogan “Biggest Little Sports Center in Alberta” is symbolic of the enthusiastic participation of the residents of Kitscoty. We are truly a proud “ACE” Community with Heart!
