Lamont Perogy Festival

Lamont Located 35 minutes east of Edmonton on Highway 15 is a community that settlers once called the “nicest open country a person could wish for.”

ATTRACTIONS & EVENTS Don’t miss Picnic in the Park on June 14. It takes place at Hillside Park with bouncy houses for the kids and free food. Take in the Lamont Community Fair & Perogy Festival on June 23. Lamont is proud to be the host community for Lamont County's 6th Annual Baba's & Borshch Ukrainian Festival on August 25-26. Read all about it on the inside front cover. To round out the year, the Lamont Community Christmas Light Up is a huge winter festival celebrating the holiday season with activities and entertainment. Kids are sure to love the Christmas lights. OUTDOORS In the Town of Lamont itself you can find Hillside Park. Take a stroll in the park, fly a kite on top of the massive hill, have a picnic, or enjoy the spray park and playground. You can also visit the Mohyla, a monument at the edge of town which marks the centenary of Ukrainian settlement in Canada, or go fishing in the Lamont Trout Pond — both are located just north of the town.
