Proudly serving the community for over 45 years!
Since then, the Grain Elevator site has become a very busy venue with different old fashion carnivals and fairs, specifically tailored towards kids and families. Each year thousands of visitors from Canada and around the world visit the Grain Elevator Museum, Archives, and Farmers' Market. The Agricultural Society also sponsors the Spruce Grove Archives, and sponsors two students to attend the annual ACCA educational Youth Program.
Several annual summer fund-raising events such as Flapjacks at the Tracks Community Pancake Breakfast, the Farm & Heritage Carnival, and the Harvest Fair are hosted by the Ag Society and are popular among community members and visitors. Events hosted at the Elevator Museum site are for the purpose of raising funds to support ongoing maintenance of the Grain Elevator and restored Water Tower, educational programs, and promotions for the Agricultural Society.

- The Spruce Grove & District Agricultural Society's long-term goal is to build an Elevator Emporium - a building which will serve as a major tourist and heritage facility for the City of Spruce Grove. The building will be constructed on the elevator site and will resemble a period train station. It will house the Spruce Grove Archives, the Museum collection, Tea House, Gift Shop, and a conference room. This dynamic centre will serve visitors and tourists, but could also be used as a facility for community events and groups. In February 2016, a building project feasibility study was completed, and was presented to the City of Spruce Grove at a counsel meeting in June, 2016.
