Thank you for booking with Alberta's #1 destination for farm fun. Family operated, we are fully committed to providing you with an outstanding, hassle-free and memorable experience. To help you get the most out of your upcoming visit, the following information will guide you in your preparations.
WHAT TO WEAR/ SITE CONDITIONS
Before visiting, always check our website for current site conditions. We post any adverse weather/site conditions, or site closures due to weather on the updates section of our website.
The Calgary Farmyard is primarily an outdoor event. Although we do have covered areas available to take a break from the weather, proper attire is essential. Be sure to bring hats or visors, sun screen, and water during hot weather, and rubber boots during or right after wet weather. Always wear sturdy footwear such as running shoes.
Does anyone in your group have allergies? During your visit you may come in contact with animals, pollen, dust, and insects such as mosquitoes and bees. Although there is nothing out of the ordinary that you couldn't come in to contact anywhere else, we strongly suggest that each individual bring all necessary allergy medications, EpiPens, etc, as we do not administer medications.
LENGTH OF STAY
We are kid and adult friendly, and have attractions to keep both younger and older audiences entertained. You are welcome to stay as long as you like. Although groups spend an average of 4.5 with us, we recommend you choose your length of your stay based on the age and needs of your group.
FOOD AND BEVERAGES
We have a full line of catered options, as well as a concession that offers a wide range of food, snacks and beverages. We also have a water fountain on site for visitors to drink or refill water bottles at. If you are ordering food with us, we will also provide you with a covered eating area for your group.
SITE GUIDELINES/ SUPERVISIONS/ FIRST AID
The Calgary Farmyard always has staff around to answer questions/assist you when needed. Our first aid station is located at the admission building. Any first aid that requires our assistance should be reported immediately to a staff.
CHECKING IN/ PAYMENT
When you arrive, please provide our admissions staff with a guest list of the people (ages 3+) who will be attending.
We can either 1) check them in as they arrive and mark them off the list, or 2) set you up at your own table by the admission building, and you can greet them and check them in. Whichever method you prefer.
As guests arrive, they will receive all required information pertaining to your visit (wristbands, schedule, site map, etc). Wristbands are required to enter the site. Anyone that is dropping off and/or picking up a member of your group must do so in the parking area. Please arrange a drop-off and pick-up time if this is the case.
Please note that payment is due on the day of the event. Payment can be made by organizational cheque, cash, debit, Visa or MasterCard. If needed, you may also pay by phone on the morning of your event once your final number of attendees is confirmed.
