While the weather may suggest otherwise, Summer 2022 is just around the corner and this season, the inner-city will see the first annual Calgary Zen Garden Festival – a brand new event meant to celebrate sun, fun, rhythm, and dance.

With two immersive stages located on Calgary’s Bow River Waterfront, Zen Fest is described as an “end-of-summer gathering” with a dancefloor, a licensed cantina serving beer, wine, and spirits, art installations, and some of your favourite food trucks.
