I grew up in the country, but have lived in cities my whole adult life. My kids, on the other hand, are born and bred city kids. One time, we went to a corn maze and one of my children (who will remain nameless to protect the ridiculous) exclaimed, “I didn’t realize it was actually corn!” Sweet mercy. Whether your kids are country kids or city kids, we have a list of places your family can get outside and experience fun on the farm. And just maybe, learn something new.

If you’re looking for farm fun in the fall, be sure to check out the Pumpkin Patches and Corn Mazes Guide, too.

Butterfield Acres Harvest Pumpkin Fest (Family Fun Calgary)

Butterfield Acres Pumpkin Fest

Make the most of the season and your family time with a visit to Butterfield Acres for the Harvest Pumpkin Fest. As the leaves turn and there’s a nip in the air, head outside to the farm. Visit animals, spot the scarecrows, and search for the perfect pumpkin to make a Halloween jack o’lantern. And there are so many opportunities to take some wonderful fall photos – helping you freeze time, if only for a moment!
