Along with the changing of the leaves comes an Edmonton family tradition that spans back many years. That’s right, it’s fall festival time again! There’s no place quite like Prairie Gardens & Adventure Farm’s Fall-o-Ween Fest to take in the tastes, sights, and aromas of the fall season!

Full of rich autumn not-to-be-missed activities and decorative displays, interactive events for kids, panning for gems, musical entertainment, farmyard friends, Lost Lemon Mine,  and the Ghost Town of Boo’n Accord!  It’s sure to be an experience the whole family will enjoy!
