Alberta Open Farm Days

A unique event will be held this weekend - Alberta Open Farm Days runs Saturday, August 22nd and Sunday, August 23rd. 

Alberta Open Farm Days is about farmers and ranchers inviting their urban and rural neighbours to stop in for a visit to share stories, see demonstrations and learn more about the farmers who grow their food. This event is a collaborative, province-wide occasion that gives Albertans an opportunity to experience the farm and understand where their food comes from. It is a backstage pass to meet the farmer, experience Ag-tourism in Alberta and taste local foods direct from the producer.

On August 22, some of Alberta’s most talented chefs and rural communities will be hosting a memorable series of farm to table culinary events that will be held around the province, using Alberta farm products.

More than 70 farms will open their gates on August 23 for farm tours.
