Harvest festival at RAM

From haystacks to puffing steam engines to steaming loaves of fresh bread, the Reynolds-Alberta Museum comes alive

From haystacks to puffing steam engines to steaming loaves of fresh bread, the Reynolds-Alberta Museum comes alive with the sights, sounds and smells of the harvest, Sept. 1 and 2.

The annual Harvest Festival features traditional fieldwork skill demonstrations, along with more than 40 pieces of vintage agricultural machinery in action, including tractors, threshers, binders, swathers, separators, combines and stationary engines.

Visitors can learn how to bake everything from focaccia and multi-grain bread to bagels and cinnamon buns. There will be plenty of free samples – made even better with fresh butter that visitors can also learn to make. The Farmers’ Market will offer fresh baked bread and treats to take home.

Visitors can also enjoy great musical entertainment by the Foggy Minded Mountain Boys; explore the museum’s feature exhibit Dinosaurs of the Field: Tractors That Built Alberta; find the perfect gift for an automotive, aviation or machine enthusiast at the museum gift shop; and enjoy Chef Brady’s tasty offerings at Cruisers Café.

Reynolds-Alberta Museum is two kilometres west of Wetaskiwin on Highway 13.
