Haying In The 30’s Getaway

2 Days-Motorcoach

DEPARTURE:  Edmonton 8:00 AM | Sherwood Park 8:30 AM

Take a trip back in time to the 1930’s as you travel to Mallaig and experience the old-fashioned charm of the 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 Alberta’s Lakeland and rural communities along Highway 28.  After a morning break in Waskatenau (wah-SET-na), arrive at the grounds in Mallaig in time for an included LUNCH.  This family-friendly show will treat you to demonstrations of old-time farming methods such as plowing, discing, mowing, cultivating, harrowing and more – from horsepower to diesel power.  Watch live displays of skills that were necessary in the early 1900’s, such as blacksmithing, well boring, horse shoeing, knife making and moose calling. Join in the fun at an Old Time Hoe-Down” where you can dance, sway or tap your toes along with the music!  After a busy afternoon, enjoy an included Beef on a Bun DINNER before travelling a short distance to the Comfort Inn 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 at the Haying in the 30’s grounds.  Take in the programmed events, perhaps catching some of the activities you missed yesterday.  You might see a labour-saving threshing machine operating, or powerful horse teams hauling wagons of feed.  After an included LUNCH, leave Mallaig behind as you reflect on the simpler days of early farming in rural Alberta.

NOTE:  Haying in the 30’s is a non-profit fundraising 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 focus on enjoying the two-day show.
