Well hey again, party people! Happy Thursday. Now, we know that these next few days may look a little different than originally anticipated, but fear not! It will still be a ton of fun. From markets to virtual events, here are the 10 best things to do in Calgary this weekend!
BINGE NETFLIX’S APRIL RELEASES
From documentaries comedies and originals, Netflix will be delivering hours of entertainment to get us through another month of craziness. This weekend, those who would prefer to stay indoors can binge their way through isolation with a ton of new releases! Enjoy!
WATCH PAUL BRANDT’S YYC HOMAGE
Alberta’s golden boy is back at it, but this time his love for YYC won’t be heard on any radio station, it’ll be seen on the big (ish) screen! Calgary sweetheart Paul Brandt is making his cinematic debut this Friday with Beauty of Pursuit, an ode to his hometown and the sport of fly fishing.
When: Friday, April 9th
Where: Online here
Time: 5 pm
TRY ONE OF CALGARY’S MOST OUTRAGEOUS DESSERTS
We scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream… and cake, cookies, pies, and jello. Though many may say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, we believe it’s actually a dessert that rocks the top spot. Why? Well, eggs can’t put a smile on your face quite like a milkshake can. Check out the link above for some of our favourites.
ATTEND THE CHROMEO VIRTUAL LIVE SHOW
Live music? We hardly remember her. It’s been far too long since we’ve swayed and bopped at a concert, but we’re putting our feet down! We refuse to be vibeless any longer! This Friday, Canadian electro-funk duo Chromeo will remind North Americans what life can look like beyond isolation by holding not one, but two concerts in participation with Stub Hub. Hit the link above for tickets!
When: Friday, April 9th and 10th
Where: Get tickets above
TAKE A SELF GUIDED ART MURAL TOUR
From East to West, Calgary has some incredible art murals. Now that the weather is a little bit nicer, why not check some of them out by using the map in the link above! Take photos, get some fresh air and stretch those legs!
WANDER THE KENSINGTON MARKET
Warmer weather is well on its way which means so are late-night walks, flip-flops, and sunny day activities! One of our favourites? The Kensington Market! If you’re a big fan like we are, hold on to your bags, because they’ve already set a date for the first one of the season!
When: Saturday, April 10th
Where: Parking lot next to the Tim Horton’s, Kensington Road NW, Calgary, AB
