Country Kickback

August 24 & 25, 2019

Whether you’re a country-living expert, or a bonafide city kid, experience ‘How the West Was Once’ out on the farm during Country Kickback at Heritage Park!

Don’t miss fascinating demonstrations including:

  • Threshing and baling with steam-powered machinery at our wheat field (weather permitting)
  • Wheat grinding & other demonstrations at the small engine display with Engine Utopia
  • Slow tractor races with Pioneer Acres of Alberta
  • Pie-eating contest
  • The Chinook Guild of Fibre Arts present a kaleidoscope of new original work: Celebrating 90 years of creativity, passion and craftsmanship

If you like to get hands-on, don’t miss these amazing activities:

  • Pet the friendly farm critters provided by Butterfield Acres
  • Try making rope, or branding a barn board and take home a souvenir!
  • Churning butter & making ice cream (without a freezer!) – sampling is encouraged!
  • Grab a partner & spin them ‘round at the old-fashioned barn dance

Everyone loves the Kickback Challenge: Complete the four listed activities, collect four stamps, and enter to win a family prize pack:

  • Lassoing
  • Gymkhana
  • Egg Find
  • Bucket Brigade

Finally, get ready for some hand-clapping, foot-stopping fun with live entertainment. We’ll see you there, pardner.
