Calgary Is Hosting A Massive Latin Festival This Month And It's Totally Free
We're here for the food.
The Calgary Stampede is underway as we speak, and it's gotten seriously crazy so far. But what's a Calgarian to do when the Stampede is over? Is it finally time to put down the overpriced drinks and head back to reality?
If you ask us, we say no. Keep up the celebrations and partying at Calgary's very own Fiestaval - a celebration geared towards celebrating Latin American culture here in the city.
Fiestaval will be going down from July 20th - 22nd, and it looks like it's shaping up to be a seriously fire event. Patrons can expect to see authentic Latin food vendors, live entertainment, Latin bands, international dance, beer gardens, and much more.
If you know anything about Latin culture, odds are good that you know their food is honestly to DIE for. Check out hundreds of authentic Latin vendors over the course of the festival and be sure to bring more cash then you think you'll need - the tacos and churros will be calling your name.
On top of all the amazing eats and entertainment, we almost forgot to mention that Fiestaval is totally FREE. No need to purchase a ticket, simply show up and be ready to stuff your face, watch some amazing dancers, and learn something new about the Latin American community in Calgary.
This year's festival is being held in Olympic Plaza. Head down on Friday, July 20th from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday, the 21st from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., or Sunday, the 22nd from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
