So, September's here. Though it snuck up pretty abruptly, we're not mad about it. This month is jammed with awesome activities in the city. There are so many things to do in Calgary this weekend, we just can't contain our excitement. This time of year is wonderful because we're dancing on the line between summer and fall, so the activities will get you pumped for autumn while still enjoying the last of those summer vibes.

If you've spent the entire summer saying you're going to get out and do things, this weekend might just be your last chance. We've rounded up some of Calgary's most exciting events coming up this weekend and we want you to check them out. We've got monster trucks, country music, shopping, food festivals, and more.

Still not sold? Calgary's biggest BBQ in history is coming this weekend. If you're more into the liquids, you might like to know that there's a beer run where you run from brewery to brewery in YYC. We told you, this weekend is big.

You're going to need your stretchy eating pants, cowboy boots, jogging clothes, farmers market tote, and trucker hat. You might want to pack a bag because it's going to be a wild ride. Here are 7 awesome things to do this weekend in Calgary.
