Haying In The 30’s Getaway

Take a trip back in time to the 1930’s as you travel to Mallaig and experience the fabulous Haying in the 30’s agricultural heritage show.  Since 1999 this small Albertan community has put on a non-profit, volunteer-run event filled with farming “the way it was” every August long weekend in support of cancer victims.

Edmonton to Mallaig to Bonnyville

Saturday. Your Haying in the 30’s Getaway begins as you are welcomed aboard your deluxe coach in Edmonton.  Head northeast into the Lakelands and rural communities along Highway 28.  After a morning break in Waskatenau (wah-SET-na), arrive at the event grounds in Mallaig in time for an included LUNCH.  This family-friendly show will treat you to demonstrations of old-fashioned farming methods such as plowing, discing, mowing, cultivating, harrowing and more – from horsepower to diesel power.  See skills like blacksmithing, well boring, horse shoeing, knife making and moose calling, all demonstrated for your delight!  Don’t forget your dancing shoes, as there will be dance music in the “Old Time Ho Down” building for you to move, sway or tap your toes to.  After a busy afternoon, enjoy an included Beef on a Bun DINNER before travelling a short distance to your hotel in Bonnyville.


Bonnyville to Mallaig to Edmonton

Sunday. Return to Mallaig this morning, where you will enjoy an included pancake BREAKFAST and an optional short interfaith service back at the Haying in the 30’s grounds.  Enjoy the events of the day, perhaps getting around to see some of the activities you missed yesterday.  You might watch a big threshing machine running off a belt drive or watch horse teams working to haul wagons of feed.  Depart Mallaig after an included LUNCH and head home with your fellow travel companions, filled with memories of older, simpler days in rural Alberta.

 NOTE: Haying in the 30’s is a non-profit fund-raising event.  Funds raised go towards supporting cancer patients needing help with transportation, lodging, fuel costs and more.  Nagel Tours will be donating to this worthy cause on your behalf so you may enjoy the two days at the show.
