Annual Fall Fair 2015  Bench Show

September 19th from 9am to 5pm
Schedule of events
Welcome to the Heritage Acres Farm Museum Fall Fair and the Bench Show, one of the many fun things happening that day!  This event brings us back, with an old-fashioned flavour, to competition when it was just lots of fun to enter your favorite creations or produce of the year and everyone entered.  There is no fee to enter and there are few rules.  The prizes are ribbons, just like in great-grandma's day.  We hope you'll enter - just for the fun of it!  Plan to bring your whole family and spend the day; there's lots of fun in store! The Bench Show will be in the loft of the Doukobour Barn this year. more


Do you have a treasured handcrafted item, handed down through the ages, and that you would like to show off during the Fall Fair?  Perhaps a wonderful example of a relative's or friend's sewing, embroidery, crocheting, tatting, cut work, knitting or other handiwork?   The items will be on display during the fair in the loft of the barn in conjunction with the bench show.   Please contact Barb Tomik at 403-627-3388 or

Southern Alberta's best kept secret...

Until Now!

Nestled in the rolling foothills of the Rocky Mountain's lies Heritage Acres Farm Museum, a 180 acre site steeped in history and filled with country charm. Located next door to the spectacular Oldman River Dam, it is well worth the short drive off Highway 3. 

Established in 1988, Heritage Acres is now Alberta's largest independent Agricultural Museum and is home to an extensive collection of pioneer and farm related artifacts. A significant number of relocated heritage buildings also adorn the site, all filled with interesting artifacts recreating a bygone era. 

Give yourself lots of time to enjoy all that the site has to offer, snacks, beverages and Ice cream are available in the gift shop or bring along your own picnic lunch, tables and park benches are located throughout the site so plan to stay a while.  Check out what is happening at the Heritages Acres.
