5 Things to do in Calgary this Weekend


5 Things To Do This Weekend Around Calgary

Summer is in full swing… enjoy it while we got it.

Here are our picks for where to play in YYC this weekend!

Afrikadey Festival

Dust off your worldly curiosity and come down and check out the Afrikadey Festival, where art from all over the African continent and various cultural exhibits will be on display. Grab a friend, or a culturally enthused date and come view some stunning multimedia displays around the city, or if you’re around Prince’s Island Park on the August 9th come for the stunning conclusion.  Bring sunscreen because it’s going to be HOT! Sound up your alley ? More info can be found at https://afrikadey.com

Chasing Summer

Play faster, stronger and longer at Calgary’s Electronic Music Festival Chasing Summer. This isn’t your Dad’s awkward collection of 80’s techno, so grab a date and some glow sticks and prepare to get jiggy with it. Yeah that’s right we went there.

Some of the headliners include Tiesto, Hardwell and Adventure Club; so prepare to have your earholes blown with some truly legendary sound.

Commonwealth Collectors Club

Ever feel torn between sipping mimosas and helping your community? Well this Sunday you can sooth your guilty conscious, by indulging in Commonwealth Collector’s Club. Swing by after brunch and enjoy some vintage clothing, local artists and epic handmade jewelry (after all there is no such thing as too much bling). DJ’s will be on hand to rock some beats, and kick your Sunday into high gear. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to charity so it’s almost like going to church… A rocking church that is. Additional details can be found here.

Veuve Cliquot 2nd Annual Polo Party

Time to class it up this Sunday for the 2nd Annual Veuve Cliquot Polo Classic. Enjoy some world class dinning, fashion, and maybe there will even be a Polo match! General admission is FREE and VIP tickets are still available, the event runs from 11am till 5 on Sunday August 10th. Nothing says class quite like Polo and bubbles- put on your Sunday best and class it up!

Fringe Fest

Been looking for some unexpected theater? Then look no further than Calgary’s annual Fringe Fest where the unexpected is to be expected. Come by and see the final conclusion to the 9-day event, totaling more than 160 different shows. One of the final artists includes Notorious Improv, whose shows are not something to miss. Then come and check out the Notorious Beer Garden and Pop-Up Patio for some Fringe-fully exciting food and beverages. So put down the mime outfit… Trust us your date won’t miss it.

Notorious crew has sold out on our pop-up patio 7 nights in a row! There is a reason….

You have two more nights to cure your case of FOMO, get into it.
