Village of Lougheed
The Friendly Village
Description:The Village of Lougheed, incorporated in 1911, is located just under two hours southeast of Edmonton on Highway 13, near the beautiful Battle River Valley. With a strong economy in agriculture and oil and gas activity, Lougheed serves the area with a selection of shopping, dining, supplies and services.
ATTRACTIONS & EVENTSEvery August the Village looks forward to the Lougheed Country Fair. It has been running for over 90 years. The fair includes exhibits showing the talents of the community, including quilting and knitting displays; there is also a pancake breakfast, parade, as well as, horse and cattle shows.
The Iron Creek Museum consists of several heritage buildings, which were moved on site. They are full of items from founding families as well as the local elevator that houses several displays. The museum is open in the summer; however, they occasionally host an old time Christmas concert in the school and light up the wood furnace — just like the old days. During the winter, the Lougheed Field House is the community's hub of activity where people can enjoy various activities and a gym. Enjoy basketball, badminton, pickleball, hockey, dodgeball and more.
