Festivals

Festivals

Events on the farm are all about enjoying each other’s company and the fruits of the land.  From lilies to pumpkins, and of course the gin, we want to celebrate what nature has helped us create. Every year we celebrate the coming of summer with World Gin Day, the second Saturday of June, followed by our Gladiola and Sunflower festivals in August and finishing up with Pumpkin Fest in September. We will also have several other activities sprinkled throughout the year. 

 

Black Fox World Gin Day

June 8th, 2019

Not only is it World Gin Day, it’s also the Queen’s official birthday! - Need we more reasons to celebrate?

Taste amazing gin cocktails by Saskatoon’s leading mixologists. We’ll be featuring some outstanding recipes for gin and tonic cupcakes, gin basted salmon, gin infused potato salad and more! As a special bonus, for every 750 ml bottle of gin purchased, receive a complimentary bucket of U-pick flowers to be redeemed later in the season.

June 8th, 2019 - 2-5pm

Surely there is nothing more impressive than a Gladiola in full bloom, and after a beautiful summer of waiting, they are finally here! Come ready to be amazed. You can walk the rows and take home your favourites by the armful. 

Savour walking through 10, 000 gladiolas, of every colour of the rainbow.  Cut some to take home with you and add in some of Mother Nature’s other spectacular flowers that we have available.

The sunniest of all of our festivals, we have over 6,000 sunflowers planted for you to take home.  See the range of colours from buttercream to chocolate and of course, the traditional yellow.  Black Fox cocktails and snacks make for an enjoyable afternoon.
