It's time to Get up and Go Wood Buffalo! Registration now open!

Below are the invitation and registration form for the Get up and Go Wood Buffalo event.

Registration for September’s Get up and Go Wood Buffalo event will begin on July 19 presented by MacDonald Island Park in partnership with Syncrude Canada. The event will take place at the Suncor Community Leisure Centre at MacDonald Island Park, and will showcase the service groups, recreation and leisure clubs and volunteer opportunities available within the Wood Buffalo Region.

"The first Get up and Go Wood Buffalo event was held this past April and was such a huge success that we’ve decided to make it an annual event taking place every fall,” said Michele Taylor, Director of Programs and Services at MacDonald Island Park Corporation. “Recreation agencies and service clubs are invited to register to showcase what they can offer our residents.”

Get up and Go Wood Buffalo hopes to promote the importance of community involvement and volunteerism. April’s Get up and Go event brought more than 1,000 residents to the free, trade show style event featuring more than 60 user groups. This year’s event will be held on September 18 from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. at the Suncor Community Leisure Centre.

Registration forms are available online through or can be picked up at Guest Services in the Suncor Community Leisure Centre. Booths are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis for a fee of $25 which includes a networking breakfast prior to the event.
