UFA established Farmer’s Day in 1945 to remind us of the importance of our industry.


Farmer day is established. In 1951 the Alberta government declares every second Friday in June to be Farmers Holiday by Order in Council. Schools are closed for the day. Festivities are held by local communities.


UFA officially revives Farmer’s day. We brought back the tradition of Farmer’s Day as a way to honour the contributions of Alberta farmers and the agriculture industry.



The event has changed since then, and although no longer a provincial holiday, it still stands as the day where we celebrate those in the agriculture industry.

Head on down to your local UFA and elebrate with us!
