This summer is going to be one for the books! Really, the only thing that it was missing up ’till now was a city-wide festival and wouldn’t you believe it, one was just announced! Foodies, shopaholics, and friends, we hope that you leave a few bucks left in your pocket after the Stampede because 2021’s Summer Cool-er event is just around the corner.

From the folks behind Calgary’s beloved YYC Hot Chocolate Fest, comes a new community-positive event meant to showcase local business, raise money for Meals On Wheels, and of course, celebrate seasonal grub, plants, clothing, and more!
