In addition, guests will be able to grab a bite or two at food stands, browse and shop local art, then sway the rest of the afternoon or evening away to a live DJ set.

Tickets can be purchased at their website here and will include 5 tokens, a commemorative glass, entertainment, and of course entry into the event for one of their two-time slots.

Don’t miss it, Calgary. There’s no better way to end this summer than sips, sun and friends.
