It's hard to believe the weekend is almost here again. If you've been wondering what you can do to make the most of this weekend, we've got your back. We looked around and found you a list of things to do in Calgary this weekend so you don't begin another week with major FOMO. 

Seeing how it's already September, there isn't much time left until the first snow hits and soon this place is Winter Wonderland for five months straight. 

Which is why you've got to make plans to hit up outdoor hot-spots as much as possible.

From soaking in the sun on epic patios to driving out of town for a surreal hike, the list will appeal to you no matter what. 

If you don't like spending time outdoors or the temperature takes a turn for the worse, we also have tons of indoor options for you.

Calgary has a thriving food scene, so it's fun to explore a new spot every weekend. The dessert game is pretty remarkable on its own. 

So all you have to do is grab your preferred fall beverage and get ready for a local adventure that will make you fall in love with YYC all over again.
