Hamlet of Hairy Hill

Hairy Hill Reunion Dedication




Hairy Hill is located 95 km northeast of Edmonton just off Highway 45. The unusual name of this hamlet is rooted in history. The buffalo used to sun themselves on these picturesque hills and had rubbing wallows where huge amounts of hair would accumulate. In the 1900s when the Canadian Pacific Railway laid its tracks they found all the hair on the large hills and the hamlet had its name. Hairy Hill is well known for its popular Hairy Hill Rodeo, now in its 29th year. In conjunction with the Hairy Hill Reunion this year, everyone is invited to attend their Farmer’s Market on June 10.
