Season’s pass holders are currently not required to book timed tickets.
Health & Safety
It is our goal to welcome you to our farm in a fun and responsible manner that adheres to AHS safety and social distancing guidelines. We appreciate your support and cooperation in helping us achieve this.
By purchasing tickets, you agree:
1) To follow all posted guidelines and social distancing policies
2) That you will not enter the Farmyard if:
You or any member of your party is ill or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. These include: Fever, cough, shortness of breath, runny nose, sore throat and/or other symptoms listed on the AHS website.
You have been exposed to someone diagnosed with or has symptoms of COVID-19.
You or someone in your household has traveled internationally in the past 14 days.
Any activity that is currently not permitted under AHS phased reopening guidelines, where social distancing cannot be achieved will remained closed. In addition, enhanced cleaning, sanitization, and disinfection standards are in place.
Food & Beverages
Food stands are available with burgers, corn dogs, chicken strips, fries, beverages, and treats (ice cream, mini donuts, pretzels, kettle corn). Guests are also welcome to bring in picnic lunches as there are numerous picnic areas.
Water fountains will remain closed as per AHS guidelines.
Length of Stay
Plan to enjoy a few hours with us. In 2019, the average length of time a family stayed on our farm was just under 5 hours. Groups of adults stayed an average of 2:45 minutes with us.
Site Accessibility & Weather
The Farmyard is primarily an outdoor venue. We recommend dressing appropriately for the weather conditions (which could almost be anything in Alberta). Things to pack could include hats, sunscreen, and/or umbrellas. We also recommend that you wear sturdy footwear (e.g. running shoes) that is suitable for outdoor and potentially uneven surfaces. You are visiting a farm, so there is a good possibility your clothes may get a little dirty...especially if you are one of those people who like to play hard.
The Farmyard is accessible to wheelchairs, motorized scooters, and strollers most of the time. Pathways may become wet and hard to navigate after long periods of heavy rainfall. Wheeled devices are not recommended in our Field Mazes.
When you visit the Calgary Farmyard, you may come in contact with pollen, animals, and insects. Although there is nothing out of the ordinary that you could not come in to contact anywhere else, we do suggest you bring any allergy medications, etc. that you feel are necessary.
We love pets and know many of you do too. We have many of our own here at the Farmyard for you to meet, so kindly ask that you leave yours at home. Sorry, no exceptions (except for service dogs of course).
