Events

The Village is open all summer long but comes to life with an annual Farmer's Day, a Country Gospel Music Weekend (RV parking available on the grounds), and Pioneer Day on the long holiday August Weekend.

A tribute to the farming community, Pioneer Day displays include threshing with a steam engine, shingle making, flour mill operations, and framing artifacts. The highlight of the celebration is the traditional Mennonite foods which are prepared for visitors. The event is usually held in late July or early August.

Weekend and after hours tours welcomed by appointment.

Telephone: (780) 928-2817
