Giant machines, sweet smells at RAM Harvest Fest


Harvest Fest on Sept 3 and 4

On Sept. 3 and 4, the Reynolds-Alberta Museum will bring in the harvest the old-fashioned way — with the help of more than 40 pieces of vintage agricultural machinery.

Tractors, threshers, binders, swathers, separators, combines, plows, rakes, balers and stationary engines will all take to the field as part of the Harvest Festival. Visitors can join the action with a ride on a 1912 Rumely tractor.

Fieldwork demonstrations, including plowing, threshing, binding, and more will be complemented by bread baking demonstrations each day. Visitors will learn as they watch bakers make everything from multigrain bread and cinnamon buns to bagels and focaccia. There will be plenty of free samples for visitors to enjoy with butter they can actually make themselves. Baking and other treats will also be for sale at the farmers’ market.

The Foggy Minded Mountain Boys will provide musical entertainment and children can make a Harvest Festival souvenir to take home.

The Reynolds-Alberta Museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through to Sept. 5.
