Farmer's Day

Get it done & get away.

Calving. Seeding. Spraying. Harvest. You work hard and have a lot to get done. And when the work is done there's nothing better than the sense of accomplishment you get, except for getting some time off and the chance to relax.

We're thrilled that we're able to help Western Canadian farmers get their work done. And this Farmer's Day, we're saying thanks to you, our members*, by giving you the chance to get away on our dime.

Alberta Provincial Legislature Building With Farmer's Day Lighting

A HEARTFELT THANK YOU TO FARMERS.

These days we are even more thankful for our farmers who face variables beyond their control and who rise above every challenge to feed the world. Our province was built on the backbone of agriculture, and like our co-operative, with the belief that we accomplish more by working together. Not only is the agriculture sector essential today, but it is also the key to future economic recovery. This Farmer’s Day, we honour and celebrate all that our farmers do for us. Once again, our urban friends will be taking part in recognizing the day with Mayoral Proclamations and landmark light-ups including the High Level Bridge of Edmonton, the Calgary Tower, and Lethbridge City Hall.

Historic Photo

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.

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.
