The 3rd annual Harvest Fair is Wednesday October 2, 2013. It’s a celebration of Calgary’s Urban Agriculture! Based on the Fall Fairs of many rural communities, this is an opportunity for our local horticulturalists, young and old, to show off their green thumbs.
The Fair is accompanied by our last outdoor Farmers’ Market of the year, live music, and a beer and wine garden.
