We enjoy hosting a variety of events at RDC each year. And we look forward to seeing you at future events.

Currently, to help prevent the potential spread of COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), as per direction from Alberta Health Services and the Government of Alberta, Red Deer College has cancelled all future in-person events, until further notice.

RDC officials will continue to assess this situation, and will continue to follow health and government directives in our decision-making.

We will share updates here about upcoming events and other plans that RDC is implementing in response to COVID-19. Please visit for more information about RDC's response to COVID-19.
