Greetings Fellow TheatreGoers and Friends! Hot on the success of our Fort Edmonton Park July Sunday Brunch, we've decided to spend our September Brunch experiencing the fine wonders of the Ukraine.
We're going to the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village for one of their special event days, the Harvest of the Past & Harvest Food Festival!
Event description from the website:
"Taking visitors back to Alberta’s agricultural roots, this final event of the Village's summer season recreates an old-fashioned threshing bee complete with vintage farm equipment and grain deliveries to the historic elevator.
The day begins with a pancake breakfast, hosted by the Friends of the Ukrainian Village Society. Other historical activities include flower and herb drying, feather stripping, making kapusta (sour cabbage), grinding wheat, quilting, and canning of produce from the museum’s heritage gardens. The Harvest Food Festival offers a unique culinary experience for visitors to experience favorite foods from the region."
Available on-site and are $9.00 for adults (18 to 64 years) and $7.00 for seniors (65 and over) including GST. These prices do not include the pancake breakfast. The pancake breakfast is an additional $7.00 for adults (no senior prices) and can be purchased on-site next to the Kiosk where the breakfast is served by the "big red barn". In addition to pancakes, there will also be sausages and eggs. Breakfast starts at 9am with service ending at 11:30am. The Harvest Food Festival is similar to Taste of Edmonton where you purchase tickets on-site and exchange them for food at the fare.

25 minutes or 50 km (30 miles) east of Edmonton along Highway 16, just 3 km (1.8 miles) east of Elk Island National Park with access along a four-lane divided highway. For a map and GPS coordinates, click here.
Since this location is not accessible by bus or LRT and is outside of the City of Edmonton, we are looking for volunteers to provide transportation from various parts of the city for those who do not have access to a vehicle to attend the brunch. If you are willing to volunteer transportation or require transportation, please send an e-mail to Charmaine through the Meet-Up website and indicate where you will be travelling from (i.e. North, South, East, West, Downtown...) so we can coordinate by location as best as possible.
Hope to see you there!
