While TOC will take place in the same location as last year (Calgary Parking Lot #6 311 8 Street SW), they will now also occupy the neighbouring green space “to allow for more exploration” while guests wander the event.

In addition to this, they’ve also announced that they’re going paperless this year, introducing what’s called a ‘Taste Pass,’ which will free up your pockets and make travelling even easier during the festival.

“Event-goers can choose to pre-purchase their Taste Pass online up until Wednesday, August 2 at 5 p.m.and receive VIP entry to skip the line at the festival and receive a complimentary Taste of Calgary tote (while supplies last),” they explain on their website.
