We share a heartfelt thank you to Farmers.

These days we are all even more thankful for our farmers. This Farmer's Day, there won't be events or giveaways, but we are still celebrating all our farmers do for us. Once again, the High Level Bridge in Edmonton, Calgary Tower, and Lethbridge City Hall will all be lit up in Orange and Green for Farmer’s Day. 

Alberta Provincial Legislature Building With Farmer's Day Lighting

Farmer's day is established. In 1951 the Alberta government declares every second Friday in June to be Farmers Holiday by Order in Council. Schools are closed for the day. Festivities are held by local communities.

Modern Farmer's Day

UFA officially revives Farmer’s day. We brought back the tradition of Farmer’s Day as a way to honour the contributions of Alberta farmers and the agriculture industry.

Historic Logo

The event has changed since then, and although no longer a provincial holiday, it still stands as the day where we celebrate those in the agriculture industry.
