August is hot on our heels and it’s shaping up to be quite the month ahead of us! From firework displays and new exhibits to live performances like the ones you’ll be able to catch during Calgary’s 5-day ContainR Fest, even a seasoned homebody will have a tough time spending another night in.

Whether Jazz is your weakness, or you’ve been waiting ever so patiently to hit a drag brunch again, Springboard’s wild event will literally have something for everyone.

From Wednesday, August 4 until Sunday, August 8, join your fellow Calgarians for a series of plays and concerts, a beer garden, an artisan market and even a cabaret!

The whole thing is incredibly accessible (only steps away from the Sunnyside train station), will follow proper safety guidelines and is in support of local artists and creators – which is something we can all get behind!
