Lemberg is a progressive little community in Saskatchewan, Canada, tucked away on Highway 22; a leisurely drive from the hustle and bustle of city life in Regina or Yorkton.
Customs, traditions and work ethic brought to the area by the early pioneers are integrated with modern technology to add to the lifestyle of our community. Originally settled by German speaking settlers, Lemberg quickly became the home to a variety of settlers and was a village July 12, 1904 and later incorporated as a town Sept 1, 1907.
Agriculture has been the mainstay of the community since the early days of Motherwell and later James Gardiner. While in the Lemberg area, be sure to visit local farms to see how technology has progressed from threshing machines to global positioning systems used by todays farmers.
There is something for every season in Lemberg.
In spring, Culture Shock provides adult drama written and produced by local residents. A must to see and/or participate in. An annual spring event hosted by the Lemberg Rink Board is the Agri Dinner. This is always guaranteed to be a hit with excellent local as well as international entertainment. The Lemberg Friendship Club Annual Show & Shine "Show Your Ride" Event in Aug.
