Calgary Events – May & June Edition

By: Sabrina Royer, Marketing Coordinator

I love this time of year – the sun is starting to shine and the leaves are starting to bloom and even though it’s only 15  degrees outside ladies bring out their shorts and men take off their tops. If you are like myself and planning a ‘staycation’ over the long weekend here are some events and activities to make your camping compatriots wish they stayed at home too.


  • Nothing marks the start of spring in Calgary like the Lilac Festival on Fourth Street. This year the Lilac Festival will be held on May 29th, from 10am to 6pm and offers entertainment, shopping, great food and more.
  • Growing up in Calgary one of my favourite times of the year was the Calgary International Children’s Festival.  This year it will be held from May 24th-28th.  Round up the kids and head downtown for one of the many performances, face painting, arts & crafts and so much more.
  • FunnyFest Calgary Comedy Festival: “11 nights of comedy, 11 venues, 11000 punchlines”.  How can you go wrong?
  • For those beer connoisseurs check out Calgary’s Beerfest next weekend; sample from over 200 different beers, try out some pairings and participate in a beer seminar.
