Rosebud sits in a sheltered valley on the Rosebud River near the edge of the Canadian Badlands. This area was called Akokiniskway by the Blackfoot people, which translates roughly to "by the river of many roses".
The Heritage of the area is treasured by its people and you definitely get the sense of that pride as you walk down the street...Stop in for lunch, Golf or peek into the small shops.
For a special treat,plan to catch the world class Dinner Theatre show.
There is a population of approx 100 but because of tourism and the Arts School,the population grows and contracts from season to season
Currently the primary industries within the Hamlet are tourism and the arts. Agriculture along with oil and gas production are significant industries in the surrounding area.
