Lamont County

Just a quick trip east of Edmonton, Lamont County has a combination of beautiful landscapes, rich cultural heritage and unique events that make it the perfect destination for day trips and weekend getaways.


As the Cradle of Ukrainian Settlement in Canada, Lamont County is proud of its heritage. Ukrainians and non-Ukrainians alike come from across the globe to fully immerse themselves in Ukrainian culture, food, music, and performances during the annual Babas & Borshch Ukrainian Festival. This is a must-see event for everything Ukrainian, celebrated in the heart of the largest settlement of Ukrainians outside of the Ukraine.  Don’t miss it!

With over 40 historical churches, Lamont County is known as the “Church Capital of North America”. Take a day or a weekend to experience the County’s beautiful countryside and fascinating history, as you discover each historical gem during our self-driving tour. The church brochure is available on the Lamont County website at

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

With attractions such as Elk Island National Park and the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village as anchor tourism destinations, and events throughout the summer to keep you celebrating, Lamont County will have you coming back again & again.
