Birthday: Campfire Cookouts

We are excited to help you celebrate your birthday at Prairie Gardens this Fall. Looking to enjoy time with your friends and family outdoors?  Love roasting marshmallows and hotdogs on the open fire? Choose our Campfire Cookout Birthday Package! Each package includes: private picnic site, hotdogs, marshmallows, fire, access to our labyrinths, and a $15 ticket (per person), which can be used towards an activity to do on the farm or enjoy at home.

You and your guests will receive your tickets when you arrive and can then choose from the following activities to use them on:

  • Succulent Teacup. Make and take an adorable succulent teacup home with you! The best part? They only need watered every 3 weeks.
  • Bag of Paydirt. Grab a bag of paydirt on your way home. Each bag includes an assortment of precious gems, minerals, and fossils. This is the perfect way to keep enjoying the party when you return home.
  • Little Bear Gelato (1 pint). Enjoy some melt-in-your mouth ice cream and sorbet. Made in Edmonton, Little Bear Gelato is great to enjoy on the farm or take home to enjoy another day!
  • Vegetables. Choose $15 worth of freshly-picked vegetables at our farm market to take home and enjoy for supper. Taste some of what we love growing on the farm!
  • Pumpkins. Choose $15 worth of pumpkins to take home. Did you know that we grow over 30 different varieties of pumpkins?
