The holidays are over and it's officially been enough time that you should be fully recovered physically and mentally but probably not financially. If you're like us and you've been spending all of your down time lying down to recuperate from the holiday hustle, it might be time to resurface. Here's a list of 6 things to do in Calgary this weekend and we think it's about time that you get up and out there.

There's nothing we love more than great reasons to leave the house that aren't grocery shopping or, you know, working. Thankfully, we live in a vibrant city that's always got tons of things going on.

There's a lot of fun to be had in YYC this weekend, so we've rounded up a list of a few can't-miss events and activities that we hope you take advantage of.

If you need more incentive to get out of the house, we hate to break it to you, but next week is going to be miserably cold and you'll definitely want to stay indoors. So, this weekend is your chance to have a blast with your friends and loved ones before the city freezes over.

If you need a cute Calgary date idea, a night out with your friends, or something to do solo, this list has got you covered.

Give this list a read then fire up those group chats and let the crew know where you'll be at this weekend.

Calgary Icebreaker Polar Dip

Price: From $34.99 to $59.99 to dip, free to watch

When: Saturday, January 11

Address: Mahogany Home Owner's Beach Club, 29 Masters Park S.E., Calgary, AB

Why You Need To Go: Jump into ice-cold water in your weirdest costume to raise funds for the SA Foundation’s work against human trafficking. Or, watch other people do it instead. Either way, this insane event never disappoints.


Calgary Flames Play The Edmonton Oilers

Price: Starting at $92

When: Saturday, January 11

Address: 555 Saddledome Rise S.E., Calgary, AB

Why You Need To Go: There's nothing better than watching a good old Albertan face-off. Calgary and Edmonton are throwing down on home soil and we can't wait to see what happens. If you're feeling extra excited about the game, you might as well be there in person.


Fightclub x Nightclub

Price: $40

When: Saturday, January 11

Address: 421 12 Ave. S.E., Calgary, AB

Why You Need To Go: You can’t miss this one-of-a-kind event at Cowboys Calgary. It’s basically a workout party where 500 people get together to work out to raise money for Dare to Care to help prevent bullying in the community. This is going to be a legendary sweat-fest that you don’t want to miss out on. 


No Pants C-Train Ride

Price: Free

When: Sunday, January 12

Address: 109 7 Ave. S.E., Calgary, AB

Why You Need To Go: Yes, it's weird, but trust us, it's a blast. On Sunday, Calgarians will be boarding the C-Trian without any pants to add a little humour back into the everyday commute. Drop your drawers in the name of fun. It's a global event and Calgary's 12th annual ride. 

 


Inaudible Headphone Party

Price: Free

When: Friday, January 10

Address: 1301 16 Ave., Calgary, AB

Why You Need To Go: If you've never been to a silent disco, now is your chance. During this super unique event, party-goers will be grooving to music on supplied headphones so the event is actually totally silent. It's like no other event you've ever been to!


10-Minute Play Festival

Price: $40

When: Saturday, January 11 at 8 p.m.

Address: 608 1 St. S.W., Calgary, AB

Why You Need To Go: If you like the theatre but you don’t enjoy long, stuffy shows, this hilarious evening is going to be right up your alley.

Actors dive into 24-hours straight of performance creation with 10 minutes of genius to show you. Watch these impromptu 10-minute performances, laugh until you cry, and go home happy. It’s that easy.
