Easter at the Farm
Canada Agriculture & Food Museum / Experimental Farm
March 25 – March 28 / 9:30am – 4:00pm
Come celebrate spring’s arrival at the Museum this Easter weekend! After a long winter, the barns have come alive with the arrival of newborn animals. Come welcome the soft little lambs, marvel at the rabbits’ silky fur and observe the fluffy newly-hatched chicks and ducklings from up close. Visitors can learn about the transformation of cacao beans into chocolate while helping make a chocolaty recipe and taste a delicious sample. What’s more, the annual egg hunt is on again – children 6 years-old and younger can participate in the egg hunt for tots while older children can take on the challenge of hunting for the “signs of spring” throughout the barns. All this from Good Friday through Easter Monday at the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum!
