Hamlet of La Crete

The Hamlet of La Crete is a Mennonite community started in the mid 30's and is the agricultural center of the County.

La Crete is situated in the northwest corner of Alberta and lies at the north base of the beautiful Buffalo Head Hills. A few miles to the east lays the Mighty Peace River, in all its roaring splendor and peaceful serenity. Besides the scenic hills and majestic river, we are also surrounded by forests, lakes and lush farmland. Our location provides unlimited opportunities for adventures such as water sports, hunting, camping, fishing, snowmobiling and many more.

La Crete has a unique Mennonite heritage and you won't want to miss the Mennonite Heritage Village, where our history comes to life in the many original buildings that we settled in. Despite vast growth in recent years, La Crete remains a friendly, family oriented community with a strong sense of pride in our heritage. We encourage you to come and visit us, either to relax and take in the beautiful scenery and heritage or embark on the adventure of a lifetime.

Please feel free to give us a call or email us at any time if you are interested in learning more about our organization, our community or need help planning a trip to La Crete.
