What is an Agricultural Society for and what do they do?

Agricultural Education & Scholarships

Programs, Events & Business Support


The Drayton Valley & District Agricultural Society has partnered with the Drayton Valley Community Foundation to purchase the Previous Pembina Nursery Building at 5015 Industrial Road. They are currently renovating for  better public use in order to host events and activities, workshops and hold the Farmers Market. 

The society took possession in July 2020 and moved in October 2021. Renovation delays and COVID lockdowns delayed the project completion but the Farmers Market moved and held their Fall season inside in 2021.
