Pioneer Acres is putting on its annual show at full capacity for the first time in nearly 3 years. The show will run from August 5 to August 7 and will offer a wide array of different events and activities such as live music, line dancing, and tractor pulls. 

The pioneer show is run by volunteers and is located on the North end of Irricana, just West of highway 9 on Township Road 274. “Our goal is to preserve western Canadian heritage” the Volunteer Marketing Coordinator Diana Rowe says.  

A special guest is also coming to the event, International Harvester. They will be providing a variety of artifacts to show at the Pioneer Acres annual show so even if you have attended the event in years past, there will be new artifacts to see, Rowe adds.  

Some of the funds raised from admission costs for the event will be put towards the Boys and Girls Club in Irricana.  

They are expecting an excess of 5000-8000 people to attend the event this year.  

Rowe says it’s a volunteer run organization that helps bring the community together in Irricana and surrounding area.  

Some other events include the variety of exhibits that they host on location such as: 

  • The Grain Academy (our newest exhibit)
