What We Do

Neutral Ground has been set up to combat social isolation and foster community through shared hobbies and activities!

Our Events

Our events provide a free, safe, inclusive, and non-judgemental way to socialize with like-minded people! 

You decide how much (or how little) you wish to interact -sometimes it’s enough just to be around other people 🙂 We just ask you to be kind and respectful of others, and you can be assured that all who attend will respect your wishes. 

We endeavor to hold events in locations where people can also easily find quiet space, if they need it.

Drop in at any time and stay as long as you like! When you arrive, you will be asked if you would like a name tag with a colour to show your level of interaction:

GREEN - Feel free to talk to me.

RED - Just browsing, happy to discover things on my own.

Once you enter the activities area, you can see the tables we have set up; our volunteers can help you find what you need, or you can explore on your own. If you want to do your own thing, there should be table space for you to do that.

Our tables are run by volunteers where available, who can show you how the hobbies and activities work, or even learn how they work, alongside of you!

At Neutral Ground events you can find many hobbies and activities, or you can bring your own!  We are always looking for people to share what they love.

We try to have these core activities at our events:

  • Boardgames
  • Knitting & Crochet
  • Model painting
  • Jigsaw Puzzles
  • LEGO
  • Multiplayer videogames
  • Tabletop wargaming

If you have a hobby or activity you enjoy that you think others would enjoy too, get in touch.  We are always looking for new volunteers to share their skills and interests with others!

At a Neutral Ground event, we welcome families, individuals, couples, friend groups... everyone! You can expect people of all ages; children under 13 should be accompanied by an adult.


We especially reach out to the socially isolated within our community, providing a space to meet people where they feel safe and unpressured.

We hold local monthly and bi-monthly events at various locations in St. Albert. All our event listings can be viewed on Facebook – please visit our page for all the info about our events and more!

Neutral Ground events are FREE, but we accept donations to enable us to continue. Snacks are also FREE when donations can support them. Visit our donation page for more info.
