Ag in the City
April 13 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Ag in the City is April 13, 2019 in Saskatoon at the Mall at Lawson Heights. This family-themed event allows participants to explore the agriculture industry in a hands-on way. Ag in the City consists of many different zones: come and find your favourite!
Animal Agriculture Zone
Learn about the role that farmers play in providing our food through responsible animal agriculture at the highest level.
Learn about the production of the cereal, oilseed, pulse and specialty crops that provide us not only with food, but many other daily-use products that may surprise you!
Want to know more about where your food comes from and pick up unique and interesting tips and tricks for its use and preparation? Welcome to the Food Zone, where it’s all about making food fun, safe and nutritious!
Agriculture gets ‘up close and personal’ in the Kid’s Zone, with live chicks and piglets, hands-on educational activities, entertainment, face-painting and more!
What does a lab coat have to do with a field of wheat? What does DNA look like, and how can I extract my own personal DNA sample? What makes Saskatoon an ag-biotech hub? These audience-interactive presentations will tell all of this, and more.
The main stage will feature an agriculture trivia game show and cooking demonstrations with celebrity chef Mark Loshack.
