Village of Vilna
HOME OF THE WORLD'S LARGEST MUSHROOMS
The Village of Vilna is a historic little boomtown that capitalizes on its prime location and its large trading area of farms, lake resorts, and First Nations' reserves.
ATTRACTIONS & EVENTS
A simple walk down Main Street is akin to a history lesson come to life. A mainstreet restoration project has revitalized many downtown heritage storefronts and buildings. Start your stroll by checking out Alberta's oldest operating pool hall and barbershop. This provincially designated and registered historic building was constructed in the 1920s and the inside still has many of its original features including furniture, advertisements, and oiled wood floors. Bring your camera when you visit Vilna's Mushroom Park, site of the World's Largest Mushrooms. Vilna's annual Boomtown Days Fair in August features a parade, games, and activities for all ages. Enjoy the supper and dance on Saturday and a spectacular fireworks show!
Five minutes east of Vilna on Highway 28 is the Bonnie Lake Campground with opportunities for fishing, swimming, and boating. Or, maybe you would rather sink a few balls at the Vilna Golf Course. Travel east of Vilna through the hamlet of Spedden and be amazed by the beautiful view of Garner Lake Provincial Park. Go north of Vilna to enjoy the recreation and resort facilities at Paradise Cove Resort on beautiful Whitefish Lake.
