Event description

Description

ROOTS families are invited to join us for Aggie Days 2019.

This FREE event is suitable for all ages. Doors open at 9:30 am, but feel free to come and go at your convenience. Please review the schedule of events to ensure that you have time to visit all of the exhibits that you would like to see.

Agriculture is Canada's leading industry, employing one third of our work force. It is important for students to find out what is happening "out on the farm" and how agriculture impacts our daily lives. The displays and interactive activities, hosted by the Agriculture Education Committee, industry organizations and volunteers, are designed to help your students learn more about Alberta's agricultural and historical legacy. It's a day of displays and 'hands on" interactive activities. Some of the curriculum related learning centers include:

COW MILKING, FLOUR MILLING, EGG PRODUCTION, GRAIN FARMING, SHEEP SHEARING, EQUINE PRESENTATIONS, FOOD SUSTAINABILITY, BEE KEEPING, BLACKSMITHING, BEEF CATTLE, INTERACTIVE NATIVE CULTURE EXHIBITS, ROPE MAKING, CROP SCIENCE, WATER CONSERVATION, HOG PRODUCTION, PLANT NUTRIENTS.

We encourage you to bring your class for a full day. Aggie Days exhibits will remain open throughout the lunch hour, so you can choose to continue to explore our many displays, watch our Indian Events committee put on a spectacular show in the Victoria Pavillion, or watch the rodeo feature in the Nutrien Western Events center arena. Students staying all day should bring a bag lunch to eat at noon in the comfortable seating of the Arena. There will be a concession open on the upper floor of the Nutrien Centre during the lunch hour, should participants choose to purchase lunch or drinks.
