Stettler’s Taste of the Heartland postponed

Plans to celebrate the local agricultural industry rescheduled for summer of 2022

COVID-19 concerns have led to the postponement of the 2021 Stettler Taste of the Heartland however organizers plan to return next year.

Donna Morris, project manager for the Stettler Regional Board of Trade and Community Development, stated that impediments as the province reopens for summer following the COVID-19 restrictions, has offered some struggles for those involved with the event.

“We were excited to be permitted to host the Taste of the Heartland in a modified version, introducing new and exciting opportunities to our guests, however complicating circumstances as our province reopens will prevent us from hosting this years’ event.” said Morris.

“We look forward to returning next summer to celebrate our local agricultural industry and provide guests with another unique and educational experience.”

The annual Taste of the Heartland event is co-sponsored with the Stettler Board of Trade, the Town of Stettler and the County of Stettler No. 6.

The full day experience offers a multi-farm bus tour, tailgate market, and long table dinner hosted on our historic main street showcasing the importance of the agricultural lifestyle of our community, noted a release.

Committee members remain dedicated to promoting the products and services of our local agricultural industry. Plans for the 2022 Stettler Taste of the Heartland will be ongoing.
