Grand Coulee is a village in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. It is located about ten minutes west of Regina. It is small, but everyone knows everyone, and once a year, there is a village event called "The Hoe Down" in which everyone comes out to the Canteen Shack across from the Elementary School and a whole bunch of events take place along with a bonfire, drinks, and music during the night. Grand Coulee has no services but opens a candy shop for a month or so before summer vacation. Grand Coulee also has a United Church open for mass on Sundays and a youth group.
