What’s up hombres? We hear something Mexcellent is coming to town. It’s got guac, it’s got salsa, and it’s got a whole lotta spice. Yes, we’re talking about Mexifest! Here’s the scoop on Calgary’s most vibrant fiesta.

First off, this thing’s got two stages. Double the fun, right? One’s for dancers and one’s for live bands, but that’s not all. Hell no amigo, there’s a whole lot more fun to be had at the wrestling ring.

Yes, seriously– there’s a wrestling ring with real luchadores from Mexico. We’re hoping they don’t get too dehydrated getting all sporty in the sun, but hey. That’s what margaritas are for.

Yep, you can definitely expect some ultra-authentic and delicious Mexi food and bevvies. Pick up a trinket or two at the artisan market and say you got it from Cabo. Meanwhile, let the kiddies roam, there’s a play area for ’em over there too.

We’ll catch you at the fest, Calgary! We’ll be the ones having a guac-induced siesta.

Hours: Friday, July 5th – Sunday, July 7th
