It’s all about you.

Farmer's Day

THANK YOU FOR CELEBRATING WITH US ON FRIDAY, JUNE 8

It’s all about you, the men and women who work tirelessly to drive the power and potential of agriculture.

History

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

1945

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.

2010

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.

2018

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!
