AG-TIVITY AGRICULTURE AMBASSADORS:
Take a tour of the Agriculture Zone! Our Ag Ambassadors lead barn tours daily from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. during the ten days of Stampede, meeting in front of the Nutrien Western Event Center. Friendly and knowledgeable guides provide information about the agriculture industry and Calgary Stampede History, and are happy to answer questions. Our Ambassadors speak a variety of languages and have big smiles that mean "friend" in every language.
Our little cabin in the Ag Zone will give you a feel for the rudimentary conditions that pioneers endured to settle the west. It was a time of hard work, but women found time to use their skills and creative ability to handcraft quilts, weave cloth, spin wool, crochet or make toys. Relive these experiences and see firsthand how these tasks were performed. Stop by the Heritage Cabin located on the north side of the Agriculture Barns.
Nutrien Ag-Tivity In The City is presented by the Calgary Stampede Agri-Food Committee and the Calgary Stampede Ag-tivity In The City Sub-Committee.
