As Alberta farmers and consumers move into the fall season, they have the opportunity to sit back and enjoy the amazing bounty that the land provides. This is exactly the reason that Alberta’s Ag for Life hosts the province’s Harvest Gala celebration each year.
The Harvest Gala brings together the scrumptious tastes of locally-produced foods, the sights and sounds of Alberta artists, a silent auction and a chance to connect with friends in the community market. It’s an opportunity to celebrate Alberta’s agricultural roots through a fusion of urban and rural style and design.

Ag for Life is a not-for-profit organization committed to building a greater understanding and appreciation of Alberta’s agricultural industry, and its fundamental connection to life. The Harvest Gala is one way Ag for Life reaches out to Albertans to tell the story of the incredible depth and prospects that agriculture affords in this province. Other Ag for Life success stories include: Classroom Agriculture Program, Little Green Thumbs, Alberta Open Farm Days, City Slickers, Rural and Farm Safety Days and the Rollover Simulator Project.
AFA is proud to have Ag for Life as one of our corporate partners. Our mission for advocacy for Alberta’s farmers, ranchers and producers aligns beautifully with the important message that Ag for Life brings to Albertans. An AFA Board Member attends the Harvest Gala every year.
“As we see an increase in interest from consumers about where their food comes from, events like these are important to connect rural and urban neighbours,” says Sheryl Rae, AFA Executive Director. “The Harvest Gala underlines the importance of sharing the impact that agriculture has on everybody’s lives. We are all stewards of the land.”
