Historical Village Opening Weekend
Sat May 18 - Mon May 20
Take a journey back in time and discover how the west was once as Heritage Park opens its Historical Village for the summer season. History comes to life in the homes, shops and on the streets of the Historical Village and in the Settlement. Enjoy a scenic horse-drawn wagon ride around the Park, experience the thrill of an antique midway or take a ride on our thundering steam train. Churn your own old-fashioned ice cream, watch a blacksmith hammer red-hot iron into a horse-shoe and march with the North West Mounted Police. Savour a mouth-watering cheese bun from the Alberta Bakery, relax at a traditional afternoon tea or enjoy a leisurely lunch in the elegant Wainwright Hotel. Our friendly costumed townsfolk will be happy to share with you the stories of the pioneers who helped settle Western Canada.
