Food, wine, tattoos and so much more.
6 Things To Do In Calgary This Weekend, October 18-20

The weekend is almost here and it's time to start planning your activities if you haven't already. There are tons of activities to enjoy and we would just hate for you to miss a thing. Here's a list of 6  things to do in Calgary this weekend.

Because this is Alberta and we rarely get to experience fall for long, it's up to you to make the most of these autumnal weeks while you still can. The month has already flown by and before we know it, there will be snow on the ground. If you haven't even started your fall bucket list, you should probably get going on it this weekend.

The city is filled with things to do this weekend and we know you'll find something you like on this list. We've rounded up six different and unique events taking place in and around Calgary. We've got something for wine lovers, tattoo enthusiasts, brunchers, shoppers, and more. Also, if you're looking to get out of the city, we've got a special event in Canmore for you to check out.

Don't let another weekend come and go without getting out and doing something different. We know you've got it in you, round up your pals and get out there.
