The air is fresh, the grass is green, and after a long cold winter, we’re ready to get out and about! Want to kick things off on the right foot? One of the city’s most anticipated events is hot on our heels, and you won’t want to miss a beat or a booth!

Celebrating community and creativity, the Calgary Lilac Festival will take over the inner city this June and it’s going to be bigger and better than ever.

Featuring bouncy houses, live music, artists, food trucks, and street performers, this event will be one you won’t forget – but if you’d like something to remember it by, consider checking out their many stalls!

Here, guests can browse the goodies, clothes, artwork, and knick-knacks of over 500 vendors – so you’ll want to plan ahead! There’s plenty to see – but there’s also much to hear.

As we mentioned there will be a ton of live entertainment, including the following musicians:

  • Hendrika
  • Brother Bicker Band
  • Pepperbox Band
  • B.les
  • Deep Love Revival
  • The Rondel Roberts Band
