Agri-Tourism and Open Farm Days

 

WILD Alberta is a Destination Management Organization (DMO) that promotes tourism in the region that encompasses Woodlands, Lac Ste. Anne, Barrhead and Westlock Counties as well as the communities of Swan Hills, Mayerthorpe, Alberta Beach, Wabamun, Westlock and Clyde.

 

Our target market is attracting visitation from the City of Edmonton and neighboring communities to experience the WILD Alberta region and the great assets it has to offer.

Tourism is an integral economic contributor, employing 1 in 9 residents as well and adding tens of millions of dollars per annum to our regional economy. As part of our planning for the 2019 summer tourist season, we are exploring building a formal Agri-Tourism strategy that includes culinary, cultural and farm-based experiences to add to that base.

This communication is to seek your assistance in engaging producers, farm owners, rural experience developers, etc. to help build a vibrant, structured and integrated Agri-Tourism brand that attracts visitors to and within the region. As your organization’s access to producers and potential farm experiences is a considerable resource, we are hoping to partner with you to promote grass root experiences, drawing urban visitors to experience farms and potentially purchase wares and other merchandise the host may offer.

Should you have any questions or wish to discuss this communication in further detail, please feel free to contact us at 780 674-3140 or alternately via e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Thank you in advance for your review and consideration of this initiative.
