We have a small event called the Calgary Stampede that has been going on for a few years. Lots of people seem to enjoy it.

You might want to book a trip for that time..... :)

There is a BBQ competition - "BBQ on the Bow" which runs the second to last weekend in August. It is a BBQ Saturday with judging Sunday type thing.

I have been keen to go for a couple of years but have always missed it.

excellent info

thanks again.....I'll pick a date soon :) for July or August(not during stampede,I am not into crowds), the African Festival is interesting, would love to hear the gospel music on Sunday. As for the BBQ, I'm vegetarian with the exception of seafood & butter chicken!!! I'll be camping Labour Day weekend ;)

the blues & roots festival is the cats meow!!!! I'll be looking into that further...
