Welcome to the end of the weekend, Calgary! We’ve got a mostly sunny week ahead, with maybe a chilly day here or there just to remind us that spring can be a cruel time. No matter, especially thanks to a ton of great activities and other options around the city.
Here are the 10 best things to do around Calgary this week.
DISCOVER A HIDDEN BAR
Here’s a great way to spruce up your next night out! Calgary is home to a quite a few hidden bars and speakeasies, offering a seriously fun experience in addition to some delightful drinks!
Where: Click the link above for our picks
WATCH A FLAMES GAME
The Battle of Alberta might have gone down this weekend, but the Flames have some seriously big games this week as well. They face off against the Avalanche on Tuesday, before a match against the Kings Thursday. Either way, you’re in for a seriously good time.
When: Tuesday, March 29th and Thursday, March 31st
Where: 555 Saddledome Rise SE
HIT HERITAGE PARK FOR DINNER AND A MOVIE
Speaking of a great night out, you might want to check out this unique activity at Heritage Park. Serving a themed meal to go with the movie (this week it’s Slumdog Millionaire), you’ll be wondering whether binge-watching Netflix is truly the best way to spend a night.
When: Wednesday, March 30th
Where: 1900 Heritage Dr. SW, Calgary
LISTEN TO A CONCERT
Feel like a little live music is in the cards this week? Snotty Nose Rez Kids, a First Nations hip-hop duo, will be taking over Commonwealth for what is sure to be a high energy night out. And, since it’s on a Thursday, you can keep the energy into the weekend!
When: Thursday, March 31st
Where: 731 10 Avenue SW
TAKE A WALK THROUGH THE SISTINE CHAPEL EXHIBITION
Dress up, wind down, and experience the magic of Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel: The Exhibition, a stunning popup gallery that celebrates one of the most famous painters in history. For more information or tickets, check out the link above.
When: Until April 15th
Where: 20 Roundup Way SE, Calgary
OR HEAD TO CONTEMPORARY CALGARY
If more, uh, traditional (used very loosely) art is your speed, know that Contemporary Calgary has got some great exhibits to check out! Plus, who doesn’t love seeing the old Science World transformed into a whole new space? Works way better as a museum, we’ll say it.
When: Open Wednesday to Sunday
Where: 701 11th Street SW
Cost: $10 for GA
TAKE ONE LAST SPIN ON THE SLOPES
One thing’s for sure- the season is coming to a close. If you can’t make it to the Rockies mid-week (fair), then know that WinSport has still got most of its runs open, and you can cruise a few groomers after work one day this week.
When: Open throughout the week
Where: 88 Canada Olympic Road SW, Calgary
ROCK OUT AT THE BIG WINTER CLASSIC
Back and bigger than ever, Calgary’s Big Winter Classic has returned for 2022. Check out bands, drink local beer, and support local artists at various venues throughout the city!
When: March 31st – April 2nd
Where: See calendar above
LOSE YOURSELF IN THE QUANTUM SANDBOX EXHIBIT
The first of its kind in Canada, Spark’s permanent digital art gallery has opened a brand new exhibit that will take you to a whole new dimension. Check it out and say bon voyage to reality – but beware, you might not want to come back!
When: Now open
Where: 220 St. George’s Drive NE, Calgary
Cost: Included in general admission ($26)
GET A SWEET TREAT FOR A GOOD CAUSE
There’s nothing like making a difference – and grabbing a tasty snack. This week, stop by Luke’s for a potentially life-saving cup of locally made ice cream as the convenience store has pledged 100% of the profits to the incredible people of Ukraine currently fighting for their freedoms.
When: Until March 31st
