Before you start serving up the apple cider or scoping out the local pumpkin patch, why not celebrate the end of summer with these great events, happening in Calgary this Labour Day weekend.
September 2 – 3 at Olympic Plaza, Free
Live music, food carving demonstrations, a singing contest, movie screening, parade and costume showcase are just some of the happenings at the annual festival celebrating all things Filipino. And, of course, plenty of delicious food. Arrive hungry!
September 3, Springbank Park for all seasons, $17
Whether you’re a Scot or not, the Calgary Highland Games (over a hundred years old now) aren’t to be missed. There’ll be piping and log tossing, heavy event competitions, highland dancing and much more. Munch on some Calgary mini donuts from one of the many food trucks while browsing Celtic jewellery from The Scottish Shoppe. You could even consider buying bagpipes from Fraser Highland Shoppe (to the chagrin of your neighbours)!
Parade: September 4, 12 – 1:30 p.m., mostly down 9th Ave, Pride in the Park: September 4, 12:30 – 6 pm, at Shaw Millennium Park, Free
Grab brunch on a patio along 9th Avenue and cheer on the parade as it winds along down 9th Avenue. Then head to Shaw Millennium Park for performances, food trucks, beer gardens, vendors and Calgary’s best party. There’ll be a special appearance by the Fake Moustache Drag King Troupe, as well as Cool Choir Calgary. DJ Dopamine and Nic Nemesis spinning the latest dance and club hits for an amazing good time. For a different sort of musical experience, don’t miss the Wizard of Oz sing-along September 2, 2016 @ 7:00pm – 10:00pm at the Plaza Theatre.
September 3 and 4 at Fort Calgary, tickets start at $99.50
Take in the sun and amazing music at the Alternative Music Fest at Fort Calgary. The lineup includes twenty one pilots, The Lumineers, Halsey, Vance Joy and more.
