Weekends fly by fast enough, so why cram all the fun into two days when you can spread it out over the week? Weekend warriors have nothing on us!  We’ve teamed up with our friends over at Theatre Calgary to give you 5 activities that will have your weekdays feeling like weekends. 

Theatre Calgary is a non-profit organization that brings talented artists to the stage and offers educational programs that enrich the arts community. Their current must-see production The Louder We Get follows the true story of a Canadian boy who fought the Catholic school system to bring his boyfriend to prom. Get your tickets here!

Glenbow Museum

Guide: 5 Calgary activities to make Weekdays Feel Like Weekends

Grab a drink, and get in touch with your cultured, sensitive side. Weekends are as much about self-care and relaxation as much as they are about getting rowdy now and then. If you’re looking for a chill night out, The Glenbow is your place. The museum is along Stephen Ave among some of the most lively restos, and the museum always has new exhibits on deck. Dinner, drinks and a leisurely walk through history? Doesn’t sound too shabby to us! Plus, you might just learn a thing or two.

When: Every night of the week
Where: 130 9 Ave SE, Calgary
Time: 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Cost: $12+
