The Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village is now closed to the general public for the season. We remain open for advance school bookings only. We will re-open to the public on May 16, 2020.
Harvest of the Past
Celebrate Alberta’s agricultural roots with a traditional harvest at the Ukrainian Village. See the Village one last time and witness an old-fashioned threshing bee complete with vintage farm equipment. Other historical activities include flower and herb drying, feather stripping, making kapusta (sour cabbage), grinding wheat, quilting, and canning of produce from the museum’s gardens.
