It’s almost the weekend and you know what that means. It’s time to start planning that Friday to Sunday agenda. As always, we are here to provide you with 6 things to do in Calgary this weekend. From festive madness to adorable markets, YYC is bringing the fun all weekend long. 

It’s time for a little happy dance. We are approaching the final weekend before the holidays, so the merry vibes are high.

You may have lots of gift shopping left to do, but you have to make time for some fun. Right now is the perfect time to start planning. With only two full days off, you need to make the most of every minute. 

Between the Christmas-themed events and raging parties, you'll be happy to call Calgary home this weekend.

Tons of these events are cheap and some are even free, which means you can attend all six without dipping into your holiday budget.

Time to get on that group chat and start making plans. Cheers to the weekend!
