It’s almost the weekend, Calgary. But this isn’t any ordinary weekend. It’s Valentine’s Day weekend. That means there are tons of love-themed events taking place this weekend. From romantic dinners to adults-only comedy shows, Calgary has it all going on. But don’t worry, there are some events that have nothing to do with the day of love. To make your life easier, we did a round-up of eight things to do in Calgary this weekend. 

Happy early Valentine's Day, Calgary. We love you all. 

In just a few short days, everyone in the city will be celebrating all things love. 

With Valentine’s Day falling on a Friday, it means there are some awesome love-focused events.

But don’t worry. If you’re single on Valentine’s Day you can still take part in all the activities. 

If you hate the holiday there are also awesome things to do that don’t involve love of any kind. 

We came up with a list of eight must-do things for the weekend. 

From shows to trivia nights, we found it all and we think you are going to love it. 

The weekend is approaching sooner than you think so use this guide to help you start making your plans.
