Whitecourt has allocated $3,500 in funding through the Sports Hosting Program to Whitecourt Minor Hockey to host the U18AA Provincial Championship event from March 29 to April 2, 2024. The Program provides support to community organizations hosting sporting events in the community, which in turn has a positive impact on the local economy.

Whitecourt has proclaimed June 15, 2024 as Lemonade Day.  Community Futures Yellowhead East is hosting the 2024 Lemonade Day event that teaches youth how to start own and operate their own business – a lemonade stand. Registration to the program is open until May 15, and further information can be found online at https://lemonadedday.org/northern-alberta
