AGGIE DAYS 2022
AGGIE DAYS - A FREE EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE FOR SCHOOL CHILDREN
The Calgary Stampede extends an invitation to Southern Alberta teachers and their students to attend Aggie Days. Aggie Days is an excellent opportunity for students, Grade 3 through Grade 6, to learn more about Alberta's agricultural industry. There is no charge to participate in this program.
Agriculture is Canada's leading industry, employing one third of our work force. It is important for students to find out what is happening "out on the farm" and how agriculture impacts our daily lives. The displays and interactive activities, hosted by industry organizations and volunteers, are designed to help your students learn more about Alberta's agricultural and historical legacy. It's a day of displays and 'hands on" interactive activities.
We encourage you to bring your class for a full day. Students staying all day should bring a bag lunch to eat at noon in the comfortable seating of the Arena. There will be a concession open on the upper floor of the Nutrien Centre during the lunch hour, should participants choose to purchase lunch or drinks.
WHEN: Wednesday, April 6, 2022 to Friday, April 8, 2022
HOURS: 9:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
WHERE: Stampede Park - Nutrien Western Event Centre and the Agriculture Building (across from the Nutrien Centre)
