Make your experience complete with mouth-watering Ukrainian food.
Operated by Alberta Culture and Tourism, the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village is located 25 minutes east of Edmonton on Highway 16 (just 3 km east of Elk Island National Park). Admission is charged. Show your current Experience Alberta’s History pass or Friends of the Ukrainian Village Society membership card and get in free!
