Ukrainian Village

Become a time traveller and step back in time at the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village.

History is brought to life at this open-air museum depicting early settlement in east central Alberta from 1892-1930. Visitors can explore more than 35 historic buildings, including three Eastern Byzantine Rite churches, a blacksmith shop, working grain elevator, farmsteads, a sod house and more! Costumed role-players portray real people who once lived and worked in these historic buildings.

Get some practical gardening advice, visit with a shopkeeper organizing his wares, stop by a pioneer kitchen for tips on baking bread, get pointers from the blacksmith on the best way to shoe your horse, or observe how a grain elevator works. Sample mouth-watering Ukrainian food at the concession.

A variety of special events, programs and activities throughout the summer provide new and exciting experiences for all audiences. Open daily from 10 a.m. 5 p.m., May long weekend to Labour Day. Located only 25 minutes east of Edmonton along Highway 16.
