Taber

The Canadian Town of Taber is located in southern Alberta. Taber was established in the late 1890s by European settlers on the banks of the lower Oldman River. It is an agricultural town of 7,591 famous for its corn due to the large amounts of sunshine the town and area receive. It has thus taken on the title Corn Capital of Canada, and has an annual "Cornfest" held in the last week of August. Cornfest is an annual summer festival held in late August. It includes a midway (rides, booths, and tests of skill) and a stage with performers. Corn-based activities include corn tasting and stuffing.

Taber's economy is largely based on agriculture. Local produce includes hogs, beef, sheep, poultry, sugar beets, potatoes, peas, carrots, wheat, sand/gravel, flax, barley, corn, beans, oats, onions, canola and mustard.
