Edmonton to Vegreville to Edmonton

Heading east on the Yellowhead Highway, you’ll soon arrive at the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village.  Enjoy an included authentic Ukrainian lunch with Kobasa Sausage, Perogies and Cabbage Rolls before experiencing the historic village itself, founded in 1971 to interpret the theme of early Ukrainian settlement in East Central Alberta prior to 1930. Be sure to wear your walking shoes!

After an interesting afternoon exploring the Ukrainian village, continue east to Vegreville, home to one of the Yellowhead Highway’s premier tourist attractions, the World’s Largest Pysanka, and the Pysanka Park Market.  The Pysanka, the Ukrainian style Easter egg, symbolizes the harmony, vitality and culture of the community.  It was dedicated as a tribute to the 100th Anniversary of the RCMP in 1973, and to their role in bringing peace and security to the largest multicultural settlement in all of Canada.  The Pysanka Park Market, an approved Alberta Farmers’ Market, is open Thursday evenings in the summer in the shadow of the Pysanka.  Stroll through the festive open air market, enjoying the music and shopping for delicious authentic Ukrainian baking, sausage, and perogies as well as fresh veggies, crafts and more.

Make your way back home to Edmonton in the early evening, sharing memories of your day’s outing with your new-found friends.

THERE IS PLENTY OF STORAGE SPACE UNDER YOUR MOTORCOACH FOR THOSE EXTRA PURCHASES!  YOU ARE WELCOME TO BRING A SMALL COOLER BAG.
