The Chinatown Street Festival returns for the 18th anniversary this week, and is inviting around 30,000 people to come ‘experience the silk road’. Every year, Calgary’s Chinatown is transformed for one day only, here’s why you shouldn’t miss it.

First, expect to be able to dive into a wide variety of delicious Asian cuisines. Maybe you’re feeling some bubble tea, maybe you want some Chinese BBQ. Whatever you’re in the mood for, you’re guaranteed to find it here.

Next, enjoy some fantastic entertainment. Live music? Check. Street performers? Check. From open till close, you’ll be treated to some fantastic entertainment everywhere you look.

Finally, there will be a ton of street vendors to shop at. Personally, we want to pick up a fan or something for next summer, but we’re going to look around anyway and see what catches our eyes. We’re guessing there will be more than a few diamonds in the rough available.

See you there!
