Rural Ramblings Encouraged : Alberta Open Farm Days

Have you ever;

Enjoyed a local chef prepared, 5 course outdoor meal, surrounded by the very plants your dinner ingredients were picked from, complete with locally sourced meat & wine, followed by live entertainment?


Seen hands-on demonstrations, pony rides, a petting zoo, a tractor obstacle course and a barrel train ride for kids followed by a community meal?


Been part of guided food tours through a local brewery, crop development center & green house that concludes with a chef prepared dinner within the greenhouse?

This just scratches the surface on the events happening during Alberta Farm Days, August 19 & 20 throughout Northern, Central & Southern Alberta.

This province wide, two day event is all about Alberta. Your family can learn how food gets from the farm to your table, a “backstage pass” to meet your local farmer. This will be the fifth annual Alberta Farm Days, featuring over 100 farms and 16 culinary events to take part in.

Watch this great video highlighting the previous years for even more of a glimpse into the fun.

Many of these events require tickets to be purchased ahead of time. So be sure to visit the website and plan your weekend!

Born and raised on a farm in northern Alberta, I highly recommend checking out some fun on these two special days. You and your kids will make memories you won’t ever forget!
