Pumpkin Festival

Summer has passed us by and we are now in Pumpkin Mode on the farm. This will be a second season hosting a Pumpkin Festival on the farm which is themed around the Halloween season.

Surprisingly the Sunflower & Corn Mazes are quite resilient and remain open and navigable until the end of October. The sunflowers have finished their bloom and their seed have matured. You are more than welcome to nibble at the seeds when traveling the mazes.

One very unique aspect to our festival is the large potato storage shed we convert into three indoor event rooms. Our farm store which is open all summer long. A kids Craft and Face Painting Room. Then last is our Pumpkin and lunch room. So even if the weather is undesirable, come inside and enjoy a warm break from the mazes.

Of course it is a Pumpkin Festival and what would a pumpkin festival be without Pumpkins, Pumpkins & more Pumpkins? Not too worry our pumpkin crop this year was absolutely fantastic and we harvested nearly 1000 ranging from small 3lb pumpkins to a record size for us at 45lbs
The Pumpkin Festival will be running Every Saturday & Sunday from 11am - 5pm in October. We will be closed if it is a snow storm, so if in doubt please phone before hitting the road. 403 224-3995 or toll free 1877 224-3939.
