This Saturday and Sunday the Reynolds-Alberta Museum in Wetaskiwin celebrates bringing in the crop the old fashioned way with its annual Harvest Festival. The event demonstrates more than 40 pieces of vintage agricultural machinery, including tractors, threshers, binders, swathers, separators, combines, and stationary engines. Farm hands will demonstrate traditional fieldwork skills, while massive steam traction engines offer a unique show as well.
Through baking demonstrations both days of Harvest Festival, visitors can learn to bake everything from focaccia and multi-grain bread to bagels and cinnamon buns. There will be free samples, made even better with fresh butter, which visitors can also learn to make. The Harvest Festival farmers’ market will offer fresh baked bread and treats to take home.
There will also be special musical guests and visitors can explore the museum’s feature exhibit The Fabulous Fifties.
