Experience Alberta’s history by driving back in time with a special display of classic vehicles at the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village’s Vintage Day event.
From a rumble seat coupe to vintage tractors, car enthusiasts and collectors are invited to participate in this annual show and shine just 25 minutes east of Edmonton.
New this year: Live, vintage music
New to Vintage Day this year, the Kalyna Voice singing competition finals will complement the event with finalists performing their favourite vintage song. Starting at 10 a.m. in the Village courtyard, this year’s finalists include singers from Edmonton, Sherwood Park, Ardrossan, Mundare, Ranfurly, Lamont, Fort Saskatchewan, Vegreville, Fort McMurray and more. This event is proudly co-hosted with Kalyna Country Ecomuseum.
Also: Swing dancing and lessons
It’s groovy moves with Swing Out Edmonton and Hit That Jive Productions, whose dancers have a love of swing-era dancing and want to share it with you! You can marvel at their footwork, or give it a try yourself with lessons taking place in the afternoon.
Step back in time and explore the historical village with costumed role-players and free horse drawn wagon rides. Other activities include a Poker Run, musical entertainment, Village market, food concession, and more! Early risers can help support the Friends of the Ukrainian Village Society by attending their strawberry and whipped cream-topped pancake breakfast from 9-11 a.m.
