Old Country Fair
Date: September 25-26, 2015
Location: University of Alberta
A good old fashioned Country Fair will take over the Edmonton Research Station on South Campus this fall, to celebrate the Faculty of Agricultural, Life & Environmental Sciences’ first 100 years!
“Main Street”, the mile-long road running north/south, will have interactive displays featuring the faculty, departments, centres and institutes, focusing on “our accomplished past … our limitless future.”
There will be plenty of family-friendly activities such as dunk tanks, pie eating contests, potato sack races, giant Jenga, the ALES 100 Jeopardy game, horseshoe toss, bean bag games and more! A mini farmers market will be located down by the old barn and, of course, the ALES Museum will be open to one and all.
Looking forward to seeing you at ALES 100 celebration!
