Calgary's arts and events scene has been blowing up over the past couple of years. There is never a dull moment in YYC, you just need to know where to find the action. There are tons of things to do in Calgary this weekend, and we want to make sure you don't miss a thing. We've taken the liberty of rounding up some of the weekend's festivities for you.\nFor one, adults-only nights are still around at TELUS Spark for another couple weeks, so you should take advantage of the opportunity to explore the science centre without kids around while you still can.\nOn top of that, there's a sporting event taking place we know Albertans will die for, a couple of world-renowned festivals, a massive air balloon festival, and that's not all. There's art to see, beer to drink, movies to watch, and more.\nBefore you commit to your winter Netflix sessions, you need to get out and experience some of these epic events. Spread those community vibes, meet some new friends, engage with local art, take a date out for a memorable adventure, or explore these events solo.

One of the oldest laws concerning food and drink are the Bavarian Purity Requirements, decreed by Duke William IV. in 1516: Only water, hops and barley should be used to brew Bavarian beer #history #Oktoberfest #yycoktoberfest2018 #prost #seeyouonfourth #missioncalgary #yycevents #yycwednesdays A post shared by WURST (@wurstcalgary) on Oct 3, 2018 at 9:15am PDT\n\nWebsite\n\n\n\nAlberta Culture Days\nPrice: Both free and ticketed events \nWhen: Friday, September 27 to Sunday, September 29\nAddress: Various locations in Calgary \nWhy You Need To Go: This three-day, Alberta-wide celebration of arts, community, and diversity is unfolding for its 11th year this weekend.
