Aggie Days Calgary and the fine art of the farm

Dec 19 2017, 11:16 am

Roll up your sleeves, get your hands dirty, and learn a little something at Aggie Days.

Aggie Days is a free yearly celebration of agriculture, aimed at educating and entertaining the millions of visitors the Calgary Stampede sees each and every year.

From sheep shearing and cow milking, to herding and horse riding, Aggie Days has something to thrill the sense of adult and child alike. Over the two day event, attendees can check out the Stock Dog Arena Trial, the Extreme Cowboy Race, and much, much more.

At Agrium Seed Survivor, kids will learn all about the life cycle of plants, the science behind growth, and see if they can “outwit, outgrow, and outlive” the competition.
