Village of Lougheed

The Friendly Village


T
he 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 & EVENTS  The community always looks forward to the Lougheed Country Fair. The fair includes exhibits showcasing the talents of community members, 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, chalked 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 (see also the CREAM tour). During the winter, the Lougheed Field House is the community's hub of activity where people can enjoy various activities and a gym. Shoot some hoops, play pickleball, dodgeball and more.

Many great events happening all year long can be found on the Go East of Edmonton website events listing page.

OUTDOORS The village has something to offer everyone in all seasons. The community is proud of the camping and picnic locations, trout pond, horseshoe pits, model aircraft field and four baseball diamonds. Residents and visitors can also enjoy cross-country skiing, snowmobiling and curling in this friendly community.
