St. Walburg is located in west-central Saskatchewan on the prairie grasslands about 91 km (56.5 mi.) northeast of Lloydminster, and just 10 km (6.2 mi.) south of where the province's forestlands begin. The economy of this town of around 800 people is based on oil and gas, grain, and cattle farming.
St. Walburg won bronze in the 2006 Livable Communities Awards for its category of towns with less than 20,000 people. Visitors are likely to notice the well maintained and treed residential areas in town. The landscape around St. Walburg is mixed, with cattle prairie to the west and lake country with fishing and water recreational activities to the east. A Trans Canada Trail section leaves St. Walburg's southern edge and heads west. The Centennial Park showcases a beautiful clock tower and memorial plaques, with walking trails and a picnic site nearby. A chuckwagon metal sculpture is at the end of Main Street.
The St. Walburg and District Historical Museum is housed in a church with a beautiful spire, and displays historic artifacts along with paintings by Count Berthold von Imhoff. His studio is just outside of town, and contains over 200 paintings. Summertime sees festivals in St. Walburg, including the Annual Blueberry Festival craft sale/street festival, and St. Walburg Fair Days featuring a parade, midway, dance, and chuckwagon races.
