Time & Location
About The Event
This is our main event and something our volunteers look forward to each year. We start off at 10am with an Old Time Church Service (all are invited to attend) and then the men head off to the field to do the threshing with vintage farm machinery. At 11am volunteers begin demonstrations such as blacksmithing, gold panning, and more.
There is plenty to do for the whole family, including sparkle tattoos, a balloon artist, wagon rides, live music and old time games. Kids are invited to do a craft and try an old fashioned cookie in the Pahal House. This year we have a display of miniature machines from the Alberta Metal Enthusiasts Network, other groups will also be demonstrating pieces of machinery. As always, the Tea House is serving up some delicious lunch and pie and the Dawgs Hunger Hut concession will be providing something tasty for the younger visitors.
Please note that entrance is free, but there is a small cash charge of $3 for the gold panning. The Tea House and concession only accept cash. If the weather is bad the event will go on but some things, such as the horses, may be cancelled.
