Pioneer Acres of Alberta

Please note that we have no scheduled shows or special events for the rest of 2020.

Pioneer Acres has possibly the largest working collection of trucks and antique farm machinery in Western Canada. Almost all of the equipment is actively demonstrated throughout the summer, particularly at our Annual Show in August. The Steam Building will impress you with its massive vertical boiler and two steam engines or you might try for a photograph of our Case steam tractor. A Blacksmith Shop and a Stationery Engine building round out the mechanical displays.

Go back in time to experience life on a farm and the production of food one hundred years ago. Enjoy a self-guided tour at your own pace or ask the knowledgeable and friendly staff and volunteers for an educational and enjoyable tour. Hands on sensory learning is not just for children. Enjoy the smell of linseed oil inside a beautifully restored boxcar at the Grain Academy, listen to a model train chugging past or see for yourself the only replica of a Beef Ring in Alberta!

The Grain Academy, which was located at the Calgary Stampede grounds since 1981, is now located at Pioneer Acres.
